The Liverpool Plains has a long standing history and the local architecture reflects that. Houses range from larger federation style homes with wide wrap around verandas, right through to the very best of modern design. Properties in towns like Quirindi are generally much larger than similarly priced properties in larger cities and most properties are within walking distance of the town centre.
While agriculture is the traditional and major industry of the Liverpool Plains, there are many and varied opportunities available in a myriad of industries. Quirindi and Werris Creek are also in close proximity to many coal mines where jobs abound for truck drivers, engineers, project managers, geologists, labourers and office staff.

There are a variety of restaurants, cafes, pubs and clubs across the Shire if an indoor pursuit is more appealing as well as many options for the nature lover with bushwalks, fishing and bird-watching all very popular. Werris Creek is home to the Australian Railway Monument and provides a unique history of Werris Creek as the first railway town in Australia.
