Bingara District Historical Society

Housed in the original Post Office Hotel which was built in 1860 from pit-sawn and hand-sawn local cypress timber, the building once had a very mixed clientele, including the ‘Father of Federation’, Sir Henry Parkes, and Fred Ward the bushranger. A blacksmith’s shop and an old school room from the days of one teacher schools have been reconstructed in the grounds. The museum is home to historical machinery, local memorabilia and an extensive geological collection. Facilities include guided tours, shop, toilets, and family history research.
