The Inland Fishing Capital of Australia

Anglers visiting Bingara have access to some of the best freshwater fishing in the state, whether they throw a line in from the banks or head up river in their boat.   Bingara's fishing paradise is probably one of the best kept secrets in the angling world.   

Thanks to more than 20 years of restocking by the local Hatchery, the Gwydir and Horton rivers have great populations of Murray cod and Yellow Belly (golden perch).   

There is easy access onto the river upstream from the town for a distance of some 10km.  


The annual Easterfish competition is growing in stature and attracts anglers Australia wide.


Copeton Dam, constructed on the headwaters of the Gwydir River, has extensive shorelines, many boat ramps and camping spots. Below the dam, trout and redfin issue the challenge to the keen angler. 

  Fishing licenses are required!
