Throwback Thursday: Tamworth then and now

TAMWORTH celebrates its bicentenary on this Sunday.

To celebrate 200 years of Tamworth, we’ve lined up a couple of the city’s most recognisable places and compared them to what they looked like decades ago.

On Sunday, there will be a range of free activities and events at Tamworth’s Bicentennial Park (while was named in honour of Australia’s bicentenary, not Tamworth’s).

The Leader will also finish off its 200 Faces of Tamworth campaign on Sunday, to coincide with the milestone.

If you have any old photos of the city that you would like us to use in a gallery, please email them through to
