Walcha is situated some 420km from Sydney via Thunderbolt's Way through Gloucester, and 523 km via Tamworth and the New England Highway.

The natural beauty of the Shire is quite breathtaking. The Shire is home to the magnificent Macleay Gorges and boasts some 205,000 hectares of dedicated national parks, wilderness and state forest. Parts of our Werrikimbe National Park are World Heritage listed.

The Shire is also a well known trout fishing mecca, boasting some 1,500 km of trout streams which are a home to Rainbow and Brown trout.

The township of Walcha is 1,067 metres above sea level, with the highest point in the district being at "The Flags" (42 kilometres south of Walcha) which is 1,493 metres above sea level. The Shire covers an area of 640,028 hectares (2,475 square miles).

The Walcha district today is a significant primary producing area. It is one of the largest stock carrying areas in New South Wales. It is renowned as one of the best fine wool growing areas in the world.
