Bendemeer is situated 42Km to the north of Tamworth at the junction of the New England and Oxley Highways and hugs the banks of the trout-infested McDonald River in the Moonbi Ranges. Bendemeer is a convenient stop-over on the inland journey from Sydney to Brisbane. The Bendemeer area is also famed for its fine wool, fat lambs and prime beef. Swimming holes on the McDonald provide refreshing relief from the summer heat.

This is a delightful old village with many points of interest. You can stop to look at many of the old buildings in the village including St Stephens Anglican Church, spend time on the river fishing or visit the Bendemeer Hotel for accommodation and great counter lunches. Alternatively, you can picnic on the Macdonald River.

Major attractions to the village include the Annual Bendemeer Rodeo.

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
