Royal Café and Accommodation Built in 1889 as the Royal Hotel, this magnificent building was guttered by fire on the 28th August 1938. Later on that year the building was rebuilt and named the New Royal Hotel. The now current owners, Brad Keable and Toni Heaney, purchased the property in December 2006 and converted the hotel to a hip 60’s style Café and more recently opened the accommodation and licensed area.

Dine either inside the chick café, on the veranda or alfresco under the magnificent willow tree.

If it is a quick caffeine hit you need, then the Royal also offers take away tea, coffee and delicious cakes, slices and biscuits.

Choose from 9 well appointed, comfortable rooms or the semi self contained cottage located across the courtyard at the back of the main building.

WALCHA is situated on the top of the Great Dividing Range 58kms south east of Armidale and 100kms north east of Tamworth on the Oxley Highway. It is approximately 1040metres above sea level with hill tops in the district reaching over 1300metres.

Walcha township has a population of approximately 1700 people with another 1800 people living in the surrounding district. It has 2 supermarkets, several cafes, 2 doctors ,a modern hospital, several banks (CBA, NAB, Westpac and New England Credit Union and 2 ATMs) a pharmacy, newsagent, fresh fruit & vegetable shop, 2 butchers, post office, gift shops, a second hand furniture shop, 2 service stations, a motel, several hotels and clubs, a sand green golf club, 2 antique bric-a-brac shops, an art gallery ,a women’s fashion store as well as many other businesses in town.
The butcher shops, supermarkets and the fruit and vegetable shop all sell excellent fresh produce at very good prices so if you are staying in Walcha for a few days you can get all your supplies when you arrive. If you are travelling from Sydney, the quickest and most scenic route to drive to Walcha is up the Newcastle Expressway onto the Pacific Highway via Hexham, Raymond Terrace, Stroud, Gloucester and Barrington. Approximately 16kms north of Raymond Terrace on the Pacific Highway, you TURN LEFT on the Bucket’s Way to Gloucester and Stroud. Travel through Gloucester, Stroud and Barrington and approximately 1.5kms north of Barrington you TURN RIGHT where the sign says Walcha.
Walcha is approximately 142 kms from Barrington. This is the most scenic part of your journey where you cross several rivers and slowly climb up into the New England Ranges with wonderful views of the Giro Valley and mountains as you drive. You eventually get to the Walcha Shire and then begin driving through very picturesque and fertile grazing land where you will see some of the best cattle and sheep grazing country in NSW. WHAT TO BRING Walcha has nearly everything you would need for your stay so you can get your supplies once you arrive and it is easy because parking is readily available and you can walk to every shop and there are no big queues!!

Because of the altitude Walcha has 4 distinct seasons.
Spring is normally very green with calves, lambs and flowers in abundance.
Autumn is full of wonderful colours with yellows, reds and coppers as the grass dries off and the trees change colour and drop their leaves. The days during Autumn & Spring are usually a very pleasant daytime temperature between about 17-22 degrees but cool in the evening.
Summer is usually around 23-28 degrees (daytime) and can be a very pleasant relief from the heat of the coast and inland. You nearly always sleep with a blanket at night during the summer.
Winter can vary quite a bit depending on the fronts that are coming through. A very cold snap can bring snow and very low daytime temperatures of 3-7 degrees or we can get big frosts in the morning (minus 3 to minus7 degrees) followed by a very sunny 15-19 degrees during the day.
The rule of thumb is:
1. Always bring a jumper to Walcha
2. In the winter, always be prepared for one of those very cold snaps especially if you are intending to venture outside (ie. Warm socks, clothes, beanie, warm coat and gloves) the great thing about the cold is being able to get warm by the log fire with a mug of hot coffee, hot chocolate or home made soup!!
