The town of Garah
In the heart of beautiful agricultural land, the inviting village of Garah lies 50km from Moree as you travel north along the Carnarvon Highway. Surrounded by cropping & livestock properties the Garah district is home to around 300 people who mostly make their living from the land. The Club Hotel is a great place to catch up on all the latest local news and learn a little more about the area. It's a go-ahead village with both the Country Women's Association and the Garah Progress Association organising events, projects and fundraisers for the community.
One of the main events on Garah's calendar is the Talmoi Picnic Races which is usually held in June and is the final leg in the Golden Triangle Picnic Races. The race meeting, reputedly one of the oldest and longest running picnic races in Australia having first been held in 1911, is a fabulous day of racing, socialising and fashions in the field. You simply must go if you're in the area in June.
There are a number of facilities available in Garah including the Club Hotel, general store, police station, public primary school, post office, petrol depot, public hall, CWA Hall, two churches plus a mechanic to assist you with any car or truck troubles. Make sure you call in and enjoy the hospitality of the amicable locals.
