Narrabri Shire's impressive number of different ecosystems makes it a fantastic bird watching area. From the massive heights of Mt Kaputar to the scrub of the Pilliga Forest to the low lying wetlands of Yarrie Lake, these vastly different habitats sustain a huge range of birds.
The Kamilaroi people were the first inhabitants of Narrabri Shire. Radiating from Narrabri, their land extends north to Goondiwindi, west to Lightning Ridge and south to Quirindi. Scar trees near Wee Waa, bora rings on Mt Kaputar, a sandstone baby washing area, and sandstone rubbings in the Pilliga forest attest to their presence.
Between 17 and 21 Million years ago erupting volcanoes created the Nandewar Ranges and the magnificent Mt Kaputar National Park. The skeleton of these volcanoes now provide a picturesque background and a magnificent attraction beckoning to be explored.
