Warialda 'Place of Wild Honey', is an attractive small town on the Reedy Creek. Warialda, with a population of 1300, is one of the major towns of the Gwydir Shire in north-western NSW. It is situated 602 km north of Sydney and 320 m above sea-level on a tributary creek of the Gwydir River, being 190 km north of Tamworth along the Fossickers Way and 62 km north-west of Inverell via the Gwydir Highway.

The town's name is said to mean 'place of wild honey' and presumably derives from the tongue of the original inhabitants, the Weraerai Aborigines. The name is thought to be related to the honey that is produced from the abundant pollen of the Tumbledown Gum (Angophora Leiocarpa), bees collect large to huge volumes of the pollen which provides a good surplus of honey.

Nov-Dec Crooble Chonicle
Well another year is galloping to a close ( or maybe it just feels like it to me), and hopefully we've all managed to get under a bit of rain. Big thanks to
Margot and the team at Croppa for yet another fabulous Melbourne cup day at the Croppa Creek Club. It is getting bigger every year and threatens to
eclipse Flemington itself!
Many thankyous from around the community to everyone who went firefighting over harvest, we are very fortunate to have such a great local Brigade.
Wishing you all a joyful, safe and relaxing Christmas season and if anyone has any December items I will do a small Supplement. Click on the image to download
