The Gwydir Good Life
The Gwydir Shire is a family-friendly destination providing visitors of all ages and interests with plenty of alternatives. Trail biking, hiking, white water rafting, horse riding or simply lazing on a river bank with – or without – a fishing line are all on offer.
There are plenty of affordable places to stay, and camping sites, both primitive and fully serviced are available. Every town and village hosts events throughout the year; agricultural shows, race meetings, rodeos, tractor pulls, bike rallies and lots more!
From the rugged heights of the Nandewar Range at Killarney Gap to the agricultural “Golden Triangle” on the great black soil plains south of the McIntyre River, the Shire boasts an extraordinary diversity of geology and habitat. As a major pioneer route from the 1830s, it provides unique insights into Australian history including the tragedy of the Myall Creek Massacre.
Warialda and Bingara are friendly country towns providing services for visitors including accommodation, caravan parks, groceries, medical services, museums and fun shops selling homewares, fashion, crafts and collectibles. Golf courses, special flora sites, Cranky Rock, The Roxy Theatre and Bingara’s The Living Classroom all contribute to a unique experience.
