Gunnedah is on the rim of the rich Liverpool Plains agricultural area and the well-known Breeza Plains. It also sits on top of the Gunnedah coal basin, one of the world’s richest deposits of high quality, low ash, low sulphur and low phosphorus semi-soft coking coal, and low ash, low sulphur, high energy thermal coal. Gunnedah is the main service centre for the local coal industry. Farmers and miners work in harmony to protect our natural resources while contributing to the wealth of the nation.
Gunnedah is also home to one of the largest and healthiest koala populations in the country and you are very likely to see koalas in the wild on many of the local walks. Gunnedah is also a bird lover’s paradise.
Poet’s Drive is a self-guided tour inspired by Gunnedah’s iconic landmarks and local heroes. Pensioners Hill Reserve offers panoramic views of Gunnedah and features a range of sculptures commemorating Gunnedah’s culture and history. One of the highlights is the Dorothea Mackellar memorial. Isobel Marion Dorothea Mackellar, OBE, (1 July 1885 – 14 January 1968), was an Australian poet and fiction writer. Her poem My Country is perhaps the best known Australian poem, especially its second stanza, which begins: "I love a sunburnt country/A land of sweeping plains,/Of ragged mountain ranges,/Of droughts and flooding rains." ...
Visit Waterways Wildlife Park, 10 acres dedicated to the care and preservation of Australian wildlife. Take in the Gunnedah Rural Museum and the Water Tower Museum and discover the people places and events that shaped the Gunnedah community.
Gunnedah is a great spot to base yourself to explore the region on relaxing day trips to the national parks of Mt Kaputar to the north, the famous Warrumbungles to the west, pristine Coolah Tops to the south and Lake Keepit to the east.
At Mackellar Motel we value guest feedback as it helps us to improve our service. Here are some responses from our regular guests:
"Motel sent email confirmation. Breakfast included. Large room very large bathroom. Sink facility in room separate to bathroom Wonderful" Kevin 14 February 2016
This is the first time I have stayed with you and I love your motel so much. Can I take some business cards to give all my friends in Melbourne?"
Joan McCrory 14 February 2016
"Thank you so much for the lovely room and comfortable stay 😃 I didn't want to leave.
Thanks so much,"
Amanda Rosier & the Tuakeu Family xo 14 February 2016
"I have stayed in many, many motels and the Mackellar takes first place by a country mile. Reception was friendly, helpful and efficient, making us feel very welcome and issuing modern swipe cards to our rooms. On entering I thought I had been given the disabled facilities as both the room and bathroom were huge. My mistake - all the rooms are huge, and include a microwave and sink plus the fridge and a great, flat screen TV. The motel looks as good as new. The rooms are elegantly furnished and professionally finished to combine the fittings in modern subdued colours. I had a cooked breakfast that was delivered on time, hot with real coffee in a plunger."
