Dungog

It is from these beautiful hills that the name Dungog, 'A Place of Thinly Wooded Hills' was derived. The hills are at their most striking in the early morning or the evening when the light casts long shadows from the trees and mist hangs in the valleys. Dungog first settled in the 1820's is two and a half hours easy drive from Sydney. With its wide streets and country charm it is the shopping and business centre for a thriving community based on beef cattle, controlled logging of hardwoods, dairying, deer farming and tourism. Welcome to the clean air and rolling landscape of the Barrington Tops and foothills. Here there is everything from the charisma of busy little towns to the working vistas of an active farming community and the marvellous wilderness of sub-tropical rainforests. Real country flavour beyond the towns the main roads meander, wooden bridges rattle, herds of cows pass to and from milking, gnarled trees line the way and galahs and rosellas flash their colour in flight. Often there is an alternative route, a gravel road perhaps, to make a round trip, maybe through the forest or criss-crossing creeks and spurs where dogs stare from a farm gate and the kids are out on horses. World-class wilderness most of Barrington Tops will always be forest, protected as State Forest and National Park, and with pristine regions designated Wilderness Areas and listed under World Heritage legislation. There is wide diversity, from vigorous regrowth stands of tall straight eucalypts, to ancient beech forest pure and undisturbed. There is rich sub-tropical rainforest in the lowland gullies, and twisted, stunted snowgums on the high plains. Immersed in nature through the forest there are tracks for mountain-bikers, horse riders and four-wheel drives. There are sites that are idyllic for bush campers. There are crystal-clear streams with sparkling waterfalls and pools where people might have swum for 40,000 years. And if you know your plants you'll find the food that was the mainstay for the Aboriginal people when only they were here: native grape, yam, crabapple, matrush, tamarind and other native plants.

Dungog James Theatre


The James Theatre was once the social hub of Dungog, not only for its film screenings, but its balls and dances, catered for by the Wattle Club ladies.

The Theatre fell on hard times and fell into disrepair until it was purchased by the Dungog Shire Council in 1979 to provide a large function centre for the community. Cinema screenings were continued during the 1980s and 90s and until 2007 by a dedicated Ken Reeve, in spite of the increasing challenges posed by television and videos. Since then the community has worked to keep the Theatre building operational for films, live performances and functions.

The James Theatre is available for hire for film, music or dramatic events as well as weddings, parties, dances, educational uses and meetings. Events happening throughout the year.

Bunna Bunoo Olive Grove


Bunna Bunoo is a family managed olive grove located on the Paterson River in the Hunter Valley Region of NSW. Like the climate of Southern Italy where their family originated, the hot summers and cool crisp winters of the area are ideal conditions for cultivating olives that produce the finest olive oil.

They harvest their own olives with their De Massi harvester as well as contract harvesting for other growers in country NSW.

At Bunna Bunoo, the olives are harvested and processed within 24 hours. Generations of olive growing and processing results in this unique and superior quality product.
