Bingara - NSW RVFT

Bingara is situated on the Gwydir River approximately 150 kilometres north of Tamworth. The area was discovered in 1827 immediately attracting graziers and in 1852 the gold prospectors followed. In the 1880s copper and diamonds were discovered and Bingara was the largest producer of diamonds at that time.

The Gwydir River Camping Areas (off White &Faithful Sts) offer both short and long-term parking. There is no cost to stay at these sites however vehicles must be self-contained and a maximum stay of 7 days applies. Pets on leads are welcome at the camping areas and potable water and the dump point can be found at Cunningham Park. Please note a small fee applies for water.

The Gwydir River offers plenty of activities including fishing canoeing and river rafting. One of the best ways to experience the area is on horseback with Gwydir River Trail Rides taking in the pleasure of superb bush trails along the river and high into the ranges. Bingara is a wonderful place to visit especially for RV travellers.
