Today the town is a producer of timber and beef cattle, and outside these industries tourism has become a major source of revenue. The town is a popular destination for four-wheel drive enthusiasts, bushwalkers, sambar deer hunters, and trout fishermen. An annual Walnut Festival formerly ran through the Australian Easter holiday period and was usually well attended.
