Gulargambone

Gulargambone is a vibrant small community situated on the Castlereagh Highway, 115 kilometres north of Dubbo and 550 kilometres north-west of Sydney. It is part of Coonamble Shire. Established on the banks of the Castlereagh River in 1883, Gulargambone is encompassed by the Warrumbungle Mountains and is home to 500 spirited Australians. Gulargambone is an Aboriginal word meaning モwatering hole for many galahsヤ. Gulargambone is primarily an agricultural area, with wheat, sheep, cattle and sawmilling as it's main enterprises. We have a wonderful mix of occupations and backgrounds, giving a truly special character and diverse range of interests. It is reassuring to know your neighbours, and to be greeted by name while you shop. We are a fiercely proud and welcoming community who have adopted a holistic approach to revitalising our future. Gulargambone's children play a major role in decision-making as we are committed to involving everyone and emphasising family values through social activity. Our continuing successes are a direct result of the cohesion and strong support we enjoy. As a community, we appreciate our natural environment and uncomplicated lifestyle while focusing on a strong and meaningful future. During the last few years, Gulargambone, like many country towns, has witnessed a downturn in the rural economy with banks closing and businesses leaving town. In 2000, when it looked as though the local Post Office would also close, our community decided to be pro-active and formed GRTC Inc (Gulargambone Rural Transaction Centre Incorporated). As a result, the first community-owned Post Office (Rural Transaction Centre) was born. Some of Gulargambone's other recent achievements include a new multi-purpose health service, attractive murals depicting Gulargambone's history in shop windows, new signage on the highway, re-bitumening the main street, planting new trees, and the introduction of recycling. Be sure to watch out for the corrugated iron 'Galahs' on the side of the road as you approach Gulargambone from any direction. Another 'must see' is the two eight two eight community tourism project. This award winning cafe, craft shop and gallery is run by the community in the renovated picture theatre. For more information visit: www.gulargambone2828.com
