Nyabing

History

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

Nyabing Attractions

Nature Reserves

The Nyabing Creek and Chinocup Nature Reserves are a treasure trove of spring wildflowers where you will also find plenty of sandalwood trees and unique marsupials such as the black-gloved wallaby and brushtail possum.

Kwobrup Dam

If you are lucky enough, a visit here will allow you to see wildlife including the western grey kangaroo, western brush wallaby, 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 tonnes of grain pass through here on the way to all parts of Australia and the rest of the world. You will 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 barley for beer.

Settler’s Hall

The 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 Street, where you can 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.

Memorial Park and Playground

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

Salmon Gum

The log in the main street car park is all that remains of an 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.

Recreational Ground

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

Grader Monument

Situated in the main street of Nyabing and originally purchased in 1923, it was the first horse drawn grader owned by the Shire.
