Nyabing

History

Nyabing was gazetted as a town in 1912 after the Katanning railway line was extended. Centennial celebrations were held in October 2012. Nyabing was originally known as Nampup, after the aboriginal name given to the soak in the area.

Sightseeing

ANZAC Memorial

Situated at the park, this area is dedicated to the men and women who served our country. The annual ANZAC Day commemoration is held here each year on 25 April, with a march starting at the Town Hall and arriving at the park for the service.

Holland Track

In 1893, John Holland travelled to the Goldfields and this track marks his route. The track can be followed all the wayto Coolgardie.

Memorial Park and Playground

Situated in town, enjoy the park for a pleasant rest or BBQ in our recently upgraded facilities.

Nyabing Creek Nature Reserve

Nyabing Creek Nature Reserve showcases spring wildflowers and can be seen on a walk through the nature reserve. You’ll also find sandalwood trees, a resource which brought our original settlers to the area as cutters.

The Settlers Hall

The Settlers Hall was built to be used as a school and was officially opened in 1915. It has been moved from its original position on Martin St, where you’ll see a Memorial Stone, to its present setting. Over the years, the building served as a Hall, the Kent Road Board, a school and a church.

Kwobrup Dam

If you are lucky enough, a visit here will allow you to see wildlife including western grey kangaroo, western brushwallaby, echidna, blue tongue lizard and a huge variety of birdlife.

CBH Grain Bins

These massive white CBH Grain Bins are hard to miss, situated in the middle of the town. Thousands of tonnesof grain pass through here on the way to all parts of Australia and the rest of the world. You’ll no doubt see grain trucks on the roads transporting the wheat to be used for noodles, bread and other baked goods, canola for oil and, very importantly, barley for beer.

Don't Miss

Nyabing Inn

Nyabing Inn is open 7 days a week. Call in to this typical country pub for a chat with the locals and a cold drink or two.

Recreational Ground

These beautiful recreation grounds are like an oasis in the desert. Here you’ll find caravan parking with excellent laundry and shower facilities.

Salmon Gum

The log in the main street car park is all that remains of a historic salmon gum. You can see the enormous base of the trunk in the garden near the loggia. Lasting for over 100 years, it finally succumbed in 2009 and was lopped on advice from an arborist.

Skinflint Body Care in the main street is open by appointment with soap making demonstrations. Handmade skin care products available for sale. Contact Megan 0427 297 712.

The Brownie Hut

The Brownie Hut, as it is known locally is also a school site. Built in 1924, it has been used as a school and a youth facility.

Chinocup Nature Reserve

Chinocup Nature Reserve is to the east of the town, just off the main road. This area is a treasure trove of spring wildflowers and unique marsupials such as the black gloved wallabies and brushtail possum.
