"A perfect country town"

Walcha (pronounced Wolka) is simply lovely. A great, friendly community with old-fashioned values - yet, not too old-fashined. Great town for families and retirees. Excellent public school and retail shopping is adequate, considering the small size of the town; although it can be expensive if you don't go to either Armidale or Tamworth for large food shopping trips. A car is essential.
Pros
  • Friendly community
  • Excellent public school
  • Quiet, quaint atmosphere
Cons
  • Isolated - a car is essential.
  • Jobseekers would probably need to travel for work.
  • Very cold climate
