The Wee Waa District is a major producer of a variety of agricultural commodities including cotton, wheat, beef cattle and sheep. These industries demand much support in terms of supplies, equipment, expert advice and labour provision. The interdependent relationships between farmers, graziers and business organizations provides the economic basis upon which the Wee Waa Community thrives.

Two More New Bridges for Narrabri Shire open to public

Two More New Bridges for Narrabri Shire open to public

The Narrabri Shire Council will benefit from today’s opening of the new Brigalow Creek and Wee Waa Lagoon Creek bridges on Pilliga Road.

This project involved the replacement of four aging timber bridges that supported freight traffic on Pilliga Road and Cypress Way in the Narrabri, Wee Waa and Pilliga areas, including the Baradine Creek Bridge, Dubbo Creek Bridge, Brigalow Creek Bridge and Wee Waa Lagoon Creek Bridge.

It was primarily funded by a $5.3 million investment from the NSW Government under the Restart NSW Resources for Regions program.

Narrabri’s perfect dilemma

Narrabri’s perfect dilemma

The Northern Daily Leader Julie Maughan 2 Mar 2017, 11:44 a.m

Narrabri will feature harness racing again this Sunday with their big Carnival of Cups meeting presenting an eight race program.

Rubbers Dilemma from the Tony Missen stables will make a return in the opening event after the filly scored her first career win last week at Narrabri from six race starts. The win surprised Missen who trains the Blissful Hall filly – and races her along with Alan Tinden, Tamworth HRC Board member Greg McDonell and Bob Peterson – as the filly had only been in the stables for two weeks.

Narrabri Gas Project EIS leaves locals frustrated

Western Magazine 3 March 2017

A 7000-page Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Narrabri Gas Project (NGP) that’s been at least five years in the making has the local community overwhelmed, with only 60 days to frame its response.

The EIS for the project was placed on public exhibition on 22 February 2017. 

Many in the community believe Santos has deliberately stymied the community’s response efforts by limiting availability of the file in an accessible electronic form.

Complying with its obligations of ease of use and accessibility, as promised to the local Community Consultative Committee.
