Nyabing Historical Society Inc.

Come and find out about the locally famous peach and steak pie!

An important location on the railway line, Nyabing's history is captured at the Settlers Hall. Built in 1915, the hall has been used as a school, Road Board offices, community hall and church. It was saved from the bulldozer and moved to its current site in 2008. The Nyabing Historical Society managed the relocation and refurbishment of the hall, to share its collection of items donated by locals throughout the district.
