Nowa Nowa has been a timber town relying on local mills for income, however this is no longer the case. There is currently only one mill operating. There are two caravan parks, one general store, one hotel/motel, one healthcare clinic and art galleries. Nowa Nowa is the home of the Nowa Nowa Nudes Art Show held in November each year. Each month there is a Pony Club meet up that draws large numbers of contestants and viewers. There is also a kindergarten, which in 2017 was taught by the Early Childhood Teacher of the year who was assisted by the states best Kindergarten Assistant. Unfortunately the Kindergarten closed in 2020 due to poor management.
