We all have our different thoughts on towns and the people that inhabit them, but two feelings came over me once I had entered Baradine. The first was a true attraction to this pretty little village, from the surrounding scenery, to the real country feel of the streets and buildings which line them. The other was a recognition of being a stranger, but a feel of warmth and welcoming from locals who were more than happy to answer any question of an inquisitive tourist. (Maybe because of the oxygen eminating from the mystical local trees, some didnt even have to breathe between sentances!)

Baradine lays 493km N/W of Sydney and is 47 km from Coonabarabran and has a population of around 700. In over 120 years of it's existance, Baradine has been through some high times due to the local timber milling industry, but even in the not so high times the community spirit here remains strong.
