Narrabri Shire: Lifestyle



No matter what your interests or hobbies you will find like-minded people in Narrabri Shire. There is always a huge range of activities and events on throughout the year. Join your friends for a hearty meal or a light snack; an ice cold beer at the pub of a caffeine hit at a local café. Narrabri Shire offers many unique dining experiences. At any time of the year residents are delighted with a number of local markets and agricultural shows bringing the community together in a great atmosphere. Your senses will be entertained with picnic races, art-house film nights, cultural exhibitions, concerts and festivals.

Enjoy sports? On any weekend you will find residents of Narrabri Shire enthusiastically involved in sports of all kinds across the numerous ovals and courts scattered across the Shire. A new $6.5 million dollar aquatic centre in Narrabri will care for keen swimmers year round. Whatever you like to do in your spare time, whether it be a lot or very little, you will enjoy spending your leisure time in this beautiful part of the world.
