Welcome to Narrabri Shire!
Covering 13,000 square-kilometres, our shire is the heart of the rich Namoi Valley in north west NSW. Renowned for producing some of the world’s highest quality wheat, cotton, fat lambs and beef, and home to several research facilities, Narrabri Shire is truly an agricultural wonderland. All this is joined by a wealth of excellent tourist attractions sure to keep visitors entertained for days.
The Newell and Kamilaroi Highways run through Narrabri Shire, bringing people from all compass points. With easy access, major attractions, top rate facilities and accommodation, many conferences and high profile performers are drawn to the area.
One glimpse of a clear night sky will leave you with no doubts as to why this region is known as “Big Sky” country. The seemingly endless horizons have facilitated the growth of the CSIRO Australia Telescope Compact Array, whose six radio telescopes are gleaming beacons of scientific advancement. The natural wonder of the Nandewar Ranges and Mt Kaputar National Park will keep even the most reluctant of bushwalkers enthralled, while the seemingly endless fields of cotton and wheat are sure to impress.
Add historical museums, Yarrie Lake, a hot artesian bore bath and art shows to this mix and you’re guaranteed many fun–filled days in Narrabri Shire. The Crossing Theatre shows the latest movies as well as a broad spectrum of stage productions, concerts, professional sporting nights and much more. A great range of local businesses and a warm welcome also await, promising unforgettable memories of your visit.
Coal seam gas exploration and coal mining are also now a part of the Shire’s expanding economic base. These industries have created diverse employment and ancillary business opportunities.
We hope this website will add to your knowledge and enjoyment of our Shire and make you feel welcome. Our Visitor Information Centre is here to help you and, with our great selection of local souvenirs, historical books and delicious regional produce, is an essential stop on your Narrabri Shire itinerary.
