Make the Tree Change
Dungog is set in the foothills of the Barrington Tops in a picturesque necklace of historic towns and villages including Clarence Town, Gresford, Paterson and Vacy. Together they encompass the Shire of Dungog, a rich farming location in the Hunter Valley region. The special features include the stunning winding roads, breath-taking scenery and fresh country air. The area is a favourite of hikers, car enthusiasts, cyclists and roving bikers.
The surrounding villages have specialised farming for everything from lavender to poultry, from olives and wine to cattle grazing and stud farms for horses. Dungog has plenty to offer for families who settle here. The local restaurants and motels with picturesque views boast a fresh country feel with a relaxed lifestyle. Dungog even has a railway station.
Tourism is also a focus of Dungog Shire’s economy with the National Parks, State Forests, Chichester Dam and the river systems as well as the historic James Theatre and scenic character of the area providing the major focus for attracting visitors. Every year Dungog hosts the Dungog Film Festival which attracts lots of celebrities to the area.
Along the rivers, the Williams, the Chichester, the Paterson and the Allyn, you’ll find a wide selection of waterholes for picnics and a swim, and walking through the splendid world heritage listed rain forests of the Barrington Tops is a huge attraction.
The hustle and bustle is very minimal, and is perfect for anyone who enjoys the country lifestyle. The locals take pride in the relaxed lifestyle Dungog has to offer and the residents are determined to keep it that way!
