Edgeroi lies just 26km north of Narrabri on the Newell Highway and is built on some of the country’s richest agricultural land.

The village is named after the famous 150,000-acre Edgeroi Station, which was one of the largest stations in north west NSW 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.

Today, Edgeroi is an agricultural village and farmers in the area grow wheat, sorghum, dry land summer crops and cotton, and graze cattle and sheep. The surrounding country consists of flat and rich black soil, framed by the magnificent Nandewar Ranges. The Edgeroi "Fuel Shop" (which boasts the cheapest fuel on the Newell) sells snacks, takeaway foods, general store items and liquor. A splendid picnic area with sheltered picnic tables, toilet facilities and a children’s playground make this a convenient rest stop.
