The Namoi River runs through the centre of town and there are many lovely places to rest on the banks of the river. Narrabri is situated at the foothills of the Nandewar Ranges and is a strong agricultural area. The main agricultural production is cotton, wheat, sorghum, various grains, sheep and cattle. The rich, black soil of the Namoi River Valley supports a diversity of agricultural activities, but cotton is by far the district’s major industry.
