Take a picnic to the Tambo Dam where an abundance of birds will keep you entertained with their antics, or you can pull up in the middle of town at the EE Parr Park which has a well-equipped picnic area with a playground to allow those little travellers to work off any excess energy.
Across from the park, the Grassland Art Gallery is well worth a visit, a contemporary art space showcasing artworks from local and regional artists, the exhibitions change every six to eight weeks so there is always something different to see.
A trip to Tambo, the Outback Teddy Bear Capital is not complete without a visit to the Tambo Teddies workshop where you can marvel as these pure wool teddies in a variety of colours and styles come to life.
Plan your visit to spend an extra day so you can take a four wheel drive adventure east along the Wilderness Way, a 320km round trip that takes in an area of rugged beauty traversing a landscape of deep gorges and vast cliff lines. Crossing the Great Dividing Range and looping back into town, this route is a nature lover’s delight full of native flora, fauna and brilliant wildflowers from August to September.
