Information

Nymagee, a small village, was originally a copper mining town and in its peak supported a population of over 2200, half of those being Chinese migrants. However, when the mine closed in 1917 most of the residents left. By 1949, the inhabitants were thinking of Nymagee as a 'ghost town', even though it still possessed a hall, racecourse and social and sports clubs.

In 1999 local residents started an outback music festival to increase tourism and residents in the town. The first festival was visited by 600 tourists and the festival has since increased Nymagee's tourism by 60% and significantly increased the number of permanent residents.

Nymagee is also home to "Clancy of the Overflow" a poem written by the famous bush poet Banjo Paterson. The sheep station, "The Overflow" featured in the poem is situated about 32 kilometres south east of Nymagee.
