Tamworth the Country Music capital of Australia in central New South Wales is home to a novel ‘big thing’ the giant Golden Guitar. Standing 12 metres high and weighing half a ton the massive guitar is a major icon in this country music loving town. The guitar was unveiled by Australia’s King of Country Music the Late Slim Dusty back in 1988, which was a fitting moment to celebrate Australia’s bicentenary. The Golden Guitar is modeled of the “Golden Guitar Award” which is given away in Tamworth every Australia Day weekend, Slim infact won more guitars than any other artist and his music loved not only in Tamworth but worldwide. The big Golden Guitar statue makes up the entrance to the Golden Guitar centre which houses tourist facilities, a country and western wax museum , gem shop and cafe, it is well worth a look when visiting central New South Wales.
