Welcome to the Golden Highway… on the Inland Adventure Trail

The Golden Highway runs east-west from the New England Highway south of Singleton to the wide open spaces at Dubbo. The Highway passes through some of Australia’s most productive areas:

Coal Mines supplying energy to the world, breeding thoroughbred horses – winners at home and overseas; fine wine for great restaurants; beef and dairy cattle; olives; cereal grain.

With the opening of the Newcastle Expressway, The Golden Highway provides easy and fast access to Upper Hunter Country, the Central West and beyond to the Great Outback. A network of connecting touring routes give our visitors a diversity of options to enjoy National Parks and Wilderness Areas, world-class Wine Regions and enjoy the excitement of a host of country events. The Golden Highway region is well catered for accommodation at all levels – Farmstays and fine B&Bs, quality Motels and country Pubs, pretty Caravan Parks or roughing it in the bush under a tent.

Tiny villages and vibrant country towns invite you to explore the vastness and beauty of Country New South Wales. The Golden Highway is part of the 10,000k long Inland Adventure Trail – a network of wonderful Highways and Touring Routes that criss-cross NSW from the north and south, east and west.
