Narrandera is a large Shire in the geographical centre of the Riverina, with over 1,000 kilometres of roads within its boundaries. The shire incorporates the town of Narrandera and the villages of Grong Grong, Binya and Barellan.
The township of Narrandera is at the centre of a diversely productive agricultural region. Narrandera marks the transition between an extensive dry-land area devoted to cereal crops and sheep and wool production to the east, and, to the west, the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area fed by water from the Burrinjuck Dam. The MIA is a region where irrigation has opened the way to a diversity of enterprise, from the growing of rice and other cereals under irrigation to the production of citrus, wine grapes and potatoes.
Lavender, aquaculture, deer farming and olive plantations are relatively recent additions to the range of farming pursuits in the area.
