This is a lovely scenic route to drive. Bingara is located in the centre of it.

The route is mainly bitumen surfaced, should be fully bitumen in a months time, as 2010.

The drive takes you past good farming land, where we saw flocks of Sheep, herds of Cattle, and even Pig farming.
Parrots, and we passed and startled a huge flock of the pretty pink & grey Galahs, not pretty to the Farmer as they are a pest, they eat his grain.

There is a Glacial area where you can stop at, it is signposted with a Brown tourist sign.
The views are excellent of what were lava flows in the Mt. Kaputar National park. We wound our way around and up and over the Mountain Range.
Stop at Sawn Rocks,its a must see, then continue on the open plains where acres of Cotton were growing before finally reaching Narrabri.

The website below, tells you about the geological aspect of these Mountains.
