The Uralla Arts organisation is working on a mobile phone app that will enable tourists to the town to listen to stories about certain locations as they pass through.

President of Uralla Arts, Andrew Parker, says the mobile phone app is currently in development.

Run through Global Positioning System software, the app aims to tell the story of each location as the user gets within close proximity.

Mr Parker says it'll complement the Heritage Walk that already exists in Uralla.

"Some of the locations on the Heritage Walk will be highlighted on the app, and others won't be, so people will be able to use either the app, or the Heritage Walk, or both," he said.

"They'll complement each other and it will just be another really fun way to access information [about Uralla]."

Andrew Parker says the app will be free and will integrate the oral histories already collected during the project.

"That was a project where we recorded the stories of over 80 Uralla people and we're using some of that material to develop the app," he said.

"Basically, the [app] stories will be more nuanced and they'll be cut with a bit of poetry and a bit of music."
