Narromine

The skies above Narromine are perfect for gliding and attract glider pilots from around the world. At the Narromine Aerodrome you can experience the thrill of flying in a sailplane with an introductory flight or take lessons. Ultralight and aeroplane flights are available, too.

Just 35 minutes’ drive west of Dubbo, this charming rural town in the Great Western Plains region is rich with aviation history. Discover vintage aircraft and other aeronautical memorabilia at the Narromine Aviation Museum, which has the only flying replica of the 1907 Wright Flyer Model A.

Narromine aerodrome - Dubbo

The museum is at the aerodrome, home to Australia’s first regional flying club. You’ll find plenty of accommodation options in Narromine, which is the birthplace of cricketing great Glenn McGrath. The former Australian Test fast bowler is honoured with a life-size bronze statue in Tom Perry Park.

Horseracing and picnics are part of country life. The annual Mungery Picnic Races, southwest of Narromine by the Bogan River, combines the two with a delightful day out. A short drive west of Narromine is Trangie, a small town by the Macquarie River with enchanting federation country pubs.
