Pappinbarra: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Fruit Salad Tree Company


A fruit salad tree, developed by the West family, who established the Fruit Salad Tree Company in 1990, in New England, New South Wales, bears up to six different fruits of the same family on the one plant. All fruits retain their own individuality, with staggered ripening times.

The Fruit Salad Tree can be grown in the ground as for normal fruit trees, or in pots for those people with very limited space. Instead of having numerous different trees with more fruit than your household can consume there is only one tree with all of the fruits ripening naturally over a period of months. There can be more than one variety of an individual fruit on a tree, thus extending the picking time.

Visit the orchard and purchase your own Fruit Salad Tree. See how they are grafted and put together for one tree with many varieties of fruit.

Timbertown Heritage Theme Park


Step back in time with a visit to Timbertown Wauchope, where you can ride the steam train, experience the bullocky display, observe the timber craftsmen at work and smell the coals of the blacksmith.

Set amongst 87 acres of natural forest, Timbertown is an entire village, re-created to demonstrate the struggles and achievements of Australia's pioneers.

It's an authentic heritage township, where the steam train still runs, timber is still sawn, and the bullock team still hauls its heavy load. You'll smell the distinctive aroma from the steam engines, the smell of sawn timber, and the lure of freshly baked bread and hot roast beef.

Timbertown is considered by many to be one of Australia's finest heritage parks. Since opening in 1976, approximately 2,000,000 people have visited Timbertown from all parts of Australia and from around the world.

Timbertown's Cedar Creek Goldfield is a welcome addition to the park.

Pappinbarra: Events

Grown and Gathered Community Market


This local community market is fast becoming known as the region's friendliest market.

The premise of the market was originally based on the idea of "re-use, recycle, repurpose" with local valley residents bringing their farm produce excesses to the local hall to barter and share with other residents. Since then, this little market has grown to include fantastic food, great coffee, eclectic and interesting stalls including jewellery, artworks, metal work, recycled clothing, knitwear, jams, preserves and plenty more. It changes each month so there's always something new to see.

The drive is about 45 minutes from Port Macquarie through the gorgeous Pappinbarra Valley past Beechwood. If you enjoy a scenic drive with a fantastic destination at the end, come and see them on the First Sunday of each month from 9am-12noon.
