Upper Bingara
A trip to Upper Bingara is a must.  Who would believe a thriving town once stood there?

Copeton Dam
The mighty Copeton Dam is just a short drive out of town on the Keera road, about 45km.  Be sure to stop off at the Batterham Lookout just outside town past the hospital on the way.

Fossicking
The Bingara District is a fossickers paradise.  Whichever way you take out of town you will find a spot to fossick.  Mudmaps are available from the Visitor Information Centre.

Also available at the centre is an excellent brochure detailing the Geological Drives which are part of the Fossickers Way.

Upper Horton
The Horton River pulsates straight through the extremely picturesque Horton Valley. Its tributaries are crystal clear and abundant with water, animals and fish.  The valley boasts a number of marked geological sites, details of which are available from the Visitor Information Centre.

Like Bingara, Upper Horton has a proactive, vibrant community that means you are never stuck for something to do!
