Crows Nest

Perched on the crest of the Great Dividing Range, the timber town of Crows Nest lies amongst pretty, undulating hills and is built around an attractive village green. In the centre of the green, known as Centenary Park, is the statue of Jimmy Crow, a local Aboriginal man, after whom some believe the town was named. Its streets are filled with striking old buildings that house antique shops, cafes, galleries and a museum.

Centenary Park has won awards for its design, including its innovative underground water catchment. This small town packs a lot of historical punch. Within an easy walk of the town centre, you'll find Salts Antiques, Carbethon Folk Museum, Regional Art Gallery and a community arts and crafts centre. After hoofing it around town make for the Applegum Walk, a pleasant stroll along the creek between Bullocky's Rest and Warmann Park.

Pack a picnic to enjoy in nearby Crows Next National Park where you'll find bird watching and bushwalking trails through the eucalypt forest. After rains you'll see Crows Nest Falls in action. You may even spot a brush-tailed rock wallaby perched on the high granite boulders.
