An icon in NSW, the Big Guitar cafe and shop was fun to be in. I didn't go into the wax museum but there's one there for those inclined. Lots of country music type memorabilia and music can be purchased. Very friendly staff in the coffee and souvenir shop. A must when visiting Tamworth.

Cafe and souvenir shop as you'd expect. Both the museum and wax museum were great and well priced. Also great for the obligatory photo opportunity.
