Aviation adventure around Narromine
As well as delicious produce and beautiful flower farms, Narromine is rich in aviation history, claiming the country's oldest regional aero club. With some of the best thermals in the world, it's a great place to watch the planes glide by while delving into Australian aviation's rich past.
Located in the Macquarie Valley on the edge of the Dubbo Western Plains, Narromine is an agricultural town renowned for its excellent gliding conditions. You can experience the thrill of flying with an introductory flight in a glider, ultralight or aeroplane at Narromine aerodrome. You can also absorb aviation history and explore aeronautical memorabilia at the Narromine Aviation Museum.
Other aviation-related activities include the annual Narromine Air Show and the National Ultralight Fly-in held at Easter.
For a more relaxing pace in this Country NSW setting, enjoy a picnic among the flowers, including irises, cannas and geraniums at Narromine Iris Farm. Grab some lime goodies from Australia's largest lime orchard, Lime Grove.
