20km north of Crookwell or 120km south of Bathurst, Binda is the original administrative centre of the shire and boasts a very colourful bushranging history.

An aboriginal word meaning “deep water”, Binda has a history older than Crookwell’s, a collection of public and private buildings of great historic value and some classic bushranger incidents. The town was gazette in 1851, although a village existed there long before.

Binda was the administrative centre of the Abercrombie district, boasting the first post office, police station, courthouse and government school in the old Crookwell Shire.
The village boasts many fine buildings including St James Anglican Church, The Old Post Office and the Old Binda Mill which now operates as a B&B.

Binda however is perhaps most famous for the annual Binda Picnic Races held on the Funny Hill property since 1848.
