If you have never visited the Inverell district, we are sure you will be pleasantly suprised at the attractions and services that the area has to offer the visitor. Inverell Motel has a wide range of brochures to assist you in selecting local attrations. A few examples are Inverell Transport Museum, Inverell Pioneer Village, Copeton Water State Park (Copeton Dam holds three times the volume of Sydney Harbour when full, is a fisherman's delight, and very popular for sailing and water skiing), local olive groves, local wineries, Green Valley Farm and nearby National Parks.
Many fossicking area's are found within the district, where visitors may fossick at their leisure for a variety of stones from tin to sapphires, quartz or maybe a diamond. There are areas for both the beginner and the avid fossicker, or you may prefer to fossick at one of the privately operated fossicking properties, where you can go and seek along the creeks and gullies. Wash tubs and equipment are provided for a fee and picnic areas are available.
