Delightful, picturesque town nestled in the hills alongside the meandering Gwydir River, highlights include:

  • The Roxy Theatre and Greek Café –built by three Greek partners from the island of Kythera as a magnificent art deco cinema with an adjoining café, the theatre operated until 1958, after which it was closed and left untouched for forty years. Beautifully and faithfully restored to its former glory in 2004 and now open to the public as a cinema, performing arts venue and multi-purpose function centre. The Café operated as a Chinese restaurant until 2011, when it also underwent a transformation back to its Greek café heritage and is a wonderful 1930’s time capsule. 74 Maitland St, Bingara www.roxybingara.com.au
