Economic Profile

The Gilgandra Shire (map) is located at the junction of the Newell, Oxley and Castlereagh Highways approximately halfway between Brisbane and Melbourne, 40 minutes north of the regional city of Dubbo in the Central West of NSW.

The economy has traditionally been driven by agriculture (wool, fat lambs, cattle and cereal cropping) but more recently, aged care and other health care services have emerged as large employers.
