Departing from Bingara on Tourist route 3, we followed the pretty Gwydir River for some of the way. I noticed people camping beside the river, what a lovely location it was!
FREE CAMP - Camps Australia (368) Bingara Riverside camping, wifi & mobile signals, dogs allowed - max stay is 1 week
FREE CAMP - Camps Australia (369) Gwydir river camps via Keera road,Mobile & wifi signal, dogs allowed

We passed by the historic Keera property with the double story homestead situated on the L/hand side of the road. On this road, cattle roam on the roads, we know, we met some! The road climbed a steep hill, once over the top there was more great scenery including a drive over the Copeton Dam Wall. As we made our way to Inverell we passed by acreage farms and Olive groves.


The distance from Bingara to Inverell is 90kms

    Very interested in your references to the River Gwydir as that is a very familiar name and place to me - not as a river but as a castle in the Forest of the same name. Since 1994 the ancient Welsh castle has been beautifully restored and as well as being a private home also offers Bed and Breakfast in two lovely rooms. It is in the Conway Valley in Snowdonia National Park,North Wales.

      Found this
      The Gwydir River was named by the explorer Allan Cunningham after his patron Peter Burrell, Baron Gwydyr, who took his title from Gwydir Castle in Wales.
      You would have fun with our names and where in Wales or in the UK they originated from. We found it interesting on our trip over there finding towns with the same names as ones in Oz.
