In 2011, Bingara had a population of 1,093 people.[1] and is currently the administrative centre for the Gwydir Shire that was created in 2003.

Only 9.4% of the population is born overseas and 3.3% is of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander background.[1] It is a popular site for retirement and hence has an old population, with 53.8% aged 55 years and over, compared to the national average of 26.4%.[1] Bingara's socioeconomic status is comparatively lower than that of Australia.
