Description

Within easy reach of Goondiwindi is the tiny town of Texas, perched on the banks of the peaceful Dumaresq River. Here you'll find excellent fishing, great camping spots and the serenity of rural landscapes.

The picturesque Dumaresq River is one of the star attractions of the Western Country, it winds through gentle hills and rocks crossed by the historic weirs of Bonshaw, Cunningham and Glenarbon. The fertile river flats are dotted with old tobacco barn relics from a colourful past where grape vines now flourish alongside orchards, vegetables, peanuts and a myriad of other agricultural crops. The beautiful water and wilderness areas of Texas invite canoeing, fishing, hiking, four wheel driving activities and picnicking.

For those less active there are the wineries to visit, camping areas, farm stays, craft shops, the Texas museum, or just relaxing by the river.

Texas was named over a land claim in the 1850s which bore many similarities to one happening in Republic of Texas and Mexico in the United States at the same time. The original town was established on the river flats in 1875 but was relocated after the disastrous floods of 1890 and 1921. Remnants of the original historic township still exist for visitors to see.
