Gunnedah Shire is located on the Liverpool Plains, one of Australia’s most productive agricultural areas. The wide sweep of our plains is the start of the paddock to plate process, bringing farm-fresh goods to the shops, restaurants, hotels and cafes of Gunnedah.

Gunnedah is situated in the fertile soils of the Liverpool Plains. The rich, black soil provides the area with an abundance of local produce, and our producers spoil us with their first-class products: pulses, lavender, cotton, wool, beef, lamb, pork, chicken, eggs and leather.

Local produce such as honey and beeswax products, jams and preserves, pickles, olives and olive oil can be bought at both the Visitor Information Centre in Chandos Steet and at Plains of Plenty in Conadilly Street. Both those outlets also offer other locally made products like wobbly ware ceramic bowls, earrings, wooden bowls and spoons, pottery, goats-milk soap, and scented candles.

If you love bread, real bread, you have to try Reference Sourdough. Each loaf is made with care using certified organic and sustainable flours milled in Gunnedah, and sold with a big smile at a pop-up store at Gunnedah Grounds on Tuesdays and Fridays between 11.30am and 1.30pm. You can order and pay online and pick up on the day. Visit to see their range and to order. Too easy!
