Edgeroi is an agricultural village that lies just 26km north of Narrabri on the Newell Highway. The rich black soil surrounding it allows for the growing of wheat, sorghum, dry land summer crops and cotton, and grazing cattle and sheep.
The village is named after the famous 150,000-acre Edgeroi Station, which was one of North West NSW’s largest stations from the early 1880s until just after World War II, when it was divided into soldier settler blocks. The station’s woolshed was once the largest in the southern hemisphere, with a 52-stand capacity. Remains of the old woolshed are visible on the left hand side of the road, 4km north after leaving Edgeroi. The War Memorial plaque from the railway station has been relocated to the vicinity of the Fuel Stop.
