Nowlands Gap, also known as Nowlands Pass and Murrurundi Gap, is a pass over the Liverpool Range, part of the Great Dividing Range, that provides access between the Northern Tablelands and Hunter regions of New South Wales, Australia.
Location and features
William Nowland, a farmer from Singleton (then known as Patrick's Plains), discovered Nowlands Gap north of Murrurundi in 1827. The pass is approximately 730 metres (2,400 ft) above sea level and is surrounded by high ground of over 1,200 metres (3,900 ft). The New England Highway carries vehicular traffic over the range, and the Main North railway line passes under the range via the Ardglen Tunnel.
