Bicentennial Park is a public park that is ideal for a family picnic. The green lawns, paved paths and small ponds here make for a beautiful and pleasant site. This park is a great getaway from the city pollution and cacophony.
The Big Golden Guitar was unveiled in 1988, to recognize and celebrate Australian Country Music. The structure stands at 40 feet (12 meters) and is made of wood, fiberglass and steel. The location is also home to the Tamworth Music Festival. The structure's design is modelled after the golden guitar trophy given to musicians for their contribution to the genre of Australian Country Music. Today, the location also features a coffee shop, gift and music shop as well as a Collectors Museum.
