New England town of Barraba, provides a picturesque bend of the Manilla River between the Horton Valley and the beautiful Nandewar Ranges. With its tree-lined streets, heritage buildings and old fashioned shop fronts, Barraba is a delightful gold rush town dating back to the mid-1800s.
The area is a haven for birdwatchers and rare birds alike, including the endangered Regent Honeyeater and 190 other bird species. Part of the Silo Art Trail, keep an eye out for the amazing 40m high Barraba Silo mural, The Water Diviner, on your way into town.
‘The Water Diviner’ by artist Fintan Magee was unveiled in April 2019 and has received worldwide notoriety.
The Barraba silos are located just west of the town centre on Manilla Road. There is plenty of parking here also, which is suitable for all sized of vehicles.
