Fairy Map & Story
Uralla Fairy Doors
The Uralla fairy (Carmena Urallensis) was first observed during the early part of the initial COVID19 lockdown, when a couple of fairy doors appeared along Bridge Street.
Since then there has been quite an explosion of activity with doors popping up all over town and beyond. Styles range from traditional to ethnic, Australian or Irish or activity-based, ground-dwelling or arboreal, sometimes with a visible fairy or fairy garden, personalised or generic – it seems like each fairy door has its own story to tell.
Searching for fairies has become a popular activity, involving parents and grandparents and mainly primary school-aged children, squeals of delight coming forth with each new discovery.
