Narrabri Information

Narrabri is a small town located on the Naomi River in New South Wales. The main economy of the town centres on farming in particular wheat, cotton and cattle. Established in 1860 its name originates from the first property in the district that was called the Narrabry Run and in the aboriginal language Narrabri means “Forked Waters”.

One of the biggest attractions especially amongst environmental lovers is the nearby Mt Kaputar National Park.

In the centre of town the Narrabri Old Gaol Museum is another great attraction. Getting a taste of yesteryears prison life the museum dates back to the 1880’s and is complete with plenty of archival history and artefacts including some fascinating paintings of Dalway a previous prisoner of Irish decent.
