Discover the Narrabri Shire
The town’s name, meaning ‘forked waters’, from the language of the Kamilaroi tribe. As you drive through Narrabri along the highway you will notice this splintering of the waterways as you pass over the Namoi River, the Narrabri Creek and, finally, the creek’s sub-branch, Horse Arm Creek.
Narrabri is the administrative heart of the second richest agricultural Shire in Australia. Located at the centre of a major cotton growing industry, agricultural industries in the area also include wheat, beef and lamb.
