About

Nothing New is a self drive trail through the beautiful Southern Downs region of South East Queensland and New England.  It is a guide for exploring the collection of quaint shops that sell all things recycled.

From Warwick in Queensland through to Tenterfield in New South Wales take a journey through fetching countryside. Peppered along the New England Highway and on scenic tourist routes there is over a dozen purveyors of vintage wares, retro, recycled, upcycled and handmade, second hand goods and antiques.

Explore and rummage until your heart is content and your trunk is packed full of treasures.

Remember waste is something we do, not something that is! There is beauty in the old, an intangible value with stories, nostalgia, craftsmanship and character.

Well off you go, take this mud map we have created and enjoy the thrill of the hunt.
