Tamworth Feature

Edition 36

In the first of two bumper features on the Tamworth Regional Council area, we take a look at why the Country Music Capital is so appealing to residents and visitors.

Also featured in this edition:

  • MUTUAL ADMIRATION: Dubbo identities John and Jacqui Tooth love their home town as much as it loves them.

  • ANZAC TRIBUTE: Private Hubert Henry Smith’s descendants and the people of Barmedman turned out on Anzac Day 2021 to honour their fallen sons.

  • IN THE NAME OF LOVE: The story of Therese Newman and her family is one of love and resilience in the face of overwhelming, heartbreaking adversity.

  • FOLLOWING HER HEART: Talented Temora artist Jo Breneger is a believer in following her intuition, which takes her on some fascinating creative journeys.

  • THE FINER THINGS: There’s something special about a trip to Country Traders Home & Life at Narromine.

  • GUARANTEED TO PLEASE: Lorraine Hills shares some long-time family favourites that never fail to delight at the dinner table.

  • HORTICULTURAL HEIRLOOM: The expansive gardens at Hazeldean were styled on an English parkland.

  • DIVINE COUPLES: We take a peek at some of the past year’s truly gorgeous country nuptials.

  • THE LAST WORD – GREEN MACHINE: The Rotary Club of Tamworth First Light is the driving force behind a project to create a greener city.

  • And much more!

Congratulations, Central West Lifestyle, on your 20th edition! It is a fabulous magazine and I loved the feature on Yass Valley. It was well written and highlighted how beautiful this part of the world is. My wife, Pip, and I would also like to thank you for the article you covered on our farm at Gundaroo. We love to come here with our kids and grandkids to relax and escape the hustle and bustle of Sydney. Keep up the great work in producing a top-quality magazine.

This letter is to commend you and your team for producing such a magnificent magazine. It has appeal to people all over NSW and beyond. Also, I wish to thank you and your colleagues for the exposure that my business has received as a result of advertising in your magazine. I am thrilled with the people I have met and contacts made through being associated with you, so much so that I have opened my brain-coaching clinic in Dubbo.

Every edition of Central West Lifestyle is eagerly awaited to see which area is being showcased and to discover what unique people and fabulous hidden treasures are within our region. Each edition is polished with engaging stories from across the Central West. It feeds my appetite to explore more locations that I never knew held such charm. Congratulations to the entire team who deliver such a sought-after treasure. You make us all so proud of the region in which we live.

I have now had the pleasure of reading all of your issues of CWL, and your ability to capture the true essence of country living is inspirational. Some stories have made me laugh and others have made me cry but all have shown the resilience of country people and their communities, making incredible reading. Congratulations and thank you Elizabeth, Alex and your talented team for producing such an informative and inspiring magazine showcasing country NSW and its citizens.

This publication is in a class of its own. The photographers, writers and design team are to be congratulated on continuing to impress with every issue. I even enjoy reading the advertisements! At last, a classy publication that tells the real stories of our great Central West. Thank you, CWL, for inspiring us all to get out there and explore our great region! Congratulations to you all.

Congratulations, Central West Lifestyle, on such a wonderful publication. You must have a great team of collaborators to pull together such interesting stories for every edition. Being a photographer myself, I really appreciate the high-quality images throughout the magazine. It is a real credit to your photographers, who are able to beautifully capture the essence of the towns you visit and the wonderful characters that make regional communities so special. Can’t wait to see what you have on the pages for winter.

Wow! Being a Narrabri girl myself for over 10 years, but now based in Port Macquarie, your magazine initially caught my eye via a social media post featuring one of my school friends on your front cover. Your magazine held my attention, however, for your exceptional post-inquiry customer service and the amazing Narrabri feature in the Winter 2018 edition. Thank you for bringing my old home town alive to me again. What an amazing community, and to the team at Central West Lifestyle I say keep up the exceptional work.
