Binnaway is located on the banks of the Castlereagh River and is within half an hour’s drive from both Coonabarabran and Coolah along the Warrumbungles Way. The town offers a pleasant countryside detour, nature trails, good value pub meals and tasty café snacks.During the 1920’s, Binnaway was a bustling railway town acting as a vital transport link ferrying timber, grain and iron ore from rural NSW to coastal markets.
To celebrate the town’s history with rail, a railway signal tribute has been established in the main street and the Binnaway community have restored the old railway barracks into accommodation.
A great way to discover the local geological history of the area is to drive one of two self drive nature trails. Pick up a copy of the ‘Wild about Binnaway’ brochure complete with easy to follow maps, and a list of common wildflowers and birds. Please note touring route is unsealed.
There are also some great rest areas and picnic and fishing spots in the Binnaway area. Relax beside Castlereagh River, enjoy a picnic in Len Guy Park in the centre of town, or try your luck fishing just out of town.
For local visitor information and a range of brochures, call into Peppermint Tree Cottage Crafts located in the main street or pop into the Newsagency across the road.
