Walgett lies at the junction of the Barwon and Namoi rivers and near the junction of the Kamilaroi and Castlereagh Highways. It is a regional hub for wool, wheat and cotton industries and the gateway to the New South Wales opal fields. The main crop farmed in the district is wheat, however the drought has caused an increase in the farming of lucerne and other good hay crops.
