During the 50's and 60's with the mine in full swing the town was humming. Of course, with high employment, the population of Barraba was much higher than it is today.
The RSL Club, like the Barraba township itself, when it's going well, it goes well.
Then came mine closure and the jobs going to the city. The town and therefore the RSL Club have suffered a downturn. The drought and Covid-19 has made everything uphill, but: good quality food from our bistro and some of the best beer in the district see some of our regulars travelling some distance to enjoy our services.
With careful management and good staff the cornerstone for social gatherings will be around for years to come.
