Wingham, Tinonee, Krambach, Dyers Crossing
Wingham is the sort of town where old meets new and provides surprises at every turn. Whether you want to sit in an historic pub and chat with an old timer, take in the works of talented local artisans or walk through a bat-filled rainforest - it's all there. The town square has no less than 13 National Trusts classified buildings and a visit to Wingham is not complete with a walk through the historic Wingham Brush rainforest. Wingham is also the gateway to a picturesque farming hinterland offering many interesting drives.
Take a step back in time to the village of Tinonee, one of the early commercial hubs of the Manning Valley. Today the hustle and bustle of the old river port town has been replaced by the gentler art of sipping tea at the local cafe or wandering the local galleries.
About half an hour along the Bucketts Way, past Tinonee and towards Gloucester, is the village of Krambach - a town that has changed little in the last 100 years. The general store is a real blast from the past, while the nearby Kramback Hotel has a proud and fascinating history. There's also a golf course and delightful German-style craft and tea shoppe. A few kilometres away is an area known as Dyers Crossing where you will find interesting pottery in an old butter factory, deer and ostrich farms and a maker of hand-made wooden toys.
