"A little town on the river"

Barham is a beautiful little town on the river where you relax & enjoy country life. Pros - basically no crime (lowest crime rate in NSW), feels like you have stepped back in time, country living at its best, river at your doorstep for fishing, boating & kayaking etc, numerous forests around for camping, dirt bike riding etc, friendly people, basic hospital & medical facility with doctors, primary & high school.
Cons- not a lot of shopping, shops that are there shut at 12noon Saturday so if you work during the week then have footy sat morning there's not a lot of time to shop, not much dining , limited medical (no dentist, Physio , Chiro ), travel 1hr to major shops, limited sports & activities for kids & adults alike, ie no indoor pool, etc
