Ceramic Break Sculpture Park
Allan Cunningham, an early Australian explorer, passed through the region in 1827 although it is believed that white settlement began earlier than that with runaway convicts from Newcastle and the Tablelands timber camps moving into the area.
Warialda became a gazetted village in 1849 and was, at that time, the administrative centre for the north west section of NSW.
As a result of this there are a number of buildings within the town and district with considerable historical interest. Amongst these are the Post Office (1880), the Court House (1882) and the Catholic Convent (early 1900's).
The district also has a number of natural attractions including Cranky Rock (see the Photo Gallery), a series of granite boulders forming some rather unique patterns.
As with many of the centres in the area, Warialda is also a major fossicking area with petrified and opalised wood being two items regularly found. Jasper quartz and chert agate are also to be found.
Fishing is yet another attraction that the district offers with the Gwydir River a most popular spot with several species to be caught including Murray Cod.
