|The beautiful Towamba River valley - from
the escarpment to the sea -
captures the heart of the tourist.

|A VALLEY FULL OF HISTORY AND BEAUTY|
|Jim Beasley's team|
|History abounds in this valley.
You can imagine dust rising in clouds above the bullock and horse teams as they
hauled full wagons up the mountain.
Perhaps you don't have to imagine the flowery language of the driver as he urged his team,
with whip and words along the narrow, rough road bringing supplies
from the coastal steamers to the small isolated settlements of the hinterland.
And you wondered why the sky is so blue over the beautiful Towamba valley?
The historic Towamba General Store and hall.
The store is now a private residence.

|ST.PAULS COMMUNITY CHURCH|
|The recently restored St.Pauls Community
Church with its gardens is an ideal location
for those quiet, intimate weddings. The new hall at the Towamba sports ground
has all the facilities required to hold a reception.

and adorned the earth with life,
when she gave us trees
mountains and seas,
she remembered this corner of ours.
