The village of Woolbrook began as a settlement in 1836 over the land that was called Surveyor’s Creek Run, which covered 40,000 acres and included the sites of future Woolbrook and Walcha Road.

At present, visitors head to Woolbrook for the annual Woolbrook Stampede held every Easter, featuring horse sports such as campdrafting as well as other novelty events.

Swimming, fishing and picnicking along the banks of the Macdonald River are popular activities in the area.

The Woolbrook Festival of Small Halls show will be supported by local act Tony Kennelly.

Tony Kennelly is a cattle farmer with a musical history dating back to the 80’s. A performer six nights a week and a concreter by day, Tony eventually put down his guitar to focus on his business and raising his family in the beautiful northern tablelands of NSW. 30 years later, Tony sat down to write a song for his son, and another for his youngest daughter. The flood gates opened, music and lyrics came pouring out and Tony’s debut album, Hittin’ The Wall, was born.
