About Bingara

Bingara is situated along the Fossickers Way, a touring route by the Gwydir River that's a relaxing alternative to the New England or Newell highways. The town offers plenty of things to see and do, including birdwatching, horseriding, bushwalking and fossicking for gold, garnets, agates, quartz and petrified wood, as well as pretty picnic spots along the Gwydir River.

More than 200 native birds inhabit this area of Country NSW – collect a brochure from the Bingara Tourist Information Centre with maps of birds found in around Warialda, Bingara and Barraba.

Bingara is also known as the inland fishing capital of Australia, and you can camp right next to the beautiful river. Elsewhere in the Glen Innes and Inverell area are plenty more camping opportunities, and a long list of other accommodation options, too.

Once you're settled in, have a look at the area's arts and culture attractions, which showcase the local community's keen interest in crafts and regional creativity.
