Visit the Collymongle Station and see the Carved trees, which are a must see item of great significance to the indigenous people of the area.

Collarenebri Township

Many of the buildings in Collarenebri today date back to 1910. As is many other towns of its era, the early streetscapes of Collarenebri were shaped by fire, which frequently destroyed buildings and so heralded rebuilding and change. Wander around the town and imagine what the early days may have been like.

Cutler’s Store

Cutler’s store opened in 1937, a small, family run general store.

Closed in 2009, this store was resurrected in June 2010 by current owners Mark and Isabel Addy. The store has changed considerably since then when it sold mainly groceries, pies and soft drinks together with a small collection of hardware and fishing gear.

Today, according to our customers, we are the home of the best freshly cooked food in town, particularly our home made burgers.

Gateway to the Macquarie Marshes

Located just 1/2 hour drive away from Carinda, The Macquarie Marshes offer an interesting experience of a major wetland, and home to some of the Outback’s most unique wildlife. Many interesting birds have been sighted here.

The Macquarie Marshes cover 200,000 hectares and support a wide range of plants and animals. The Marshes contain extensive areas of common reed, cumbungi, river red gum woodlands, coolibah woodlands and water couch grasslands. The Marshes are recognised as the major colonial waterbird nesting area in Australia and are recognised under the Ramsar Convention as a wetland of international importance. The reserve is managed by the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service, the remaining 90% is mainly private land managed for agricultural purposes. The Nature Reserve is mostly surrounded by private land and it is important to respect this when visiting. Visit www.macquariemarshes.com
