Cryon is a parish and hamlet situated 685 km from Sydney, 130 km west of Narrabri and 52 km east of Walgett on the Kamilaroi Highway in the north-west of New South Wales, Australia, and lies in the Walgett Shire. The settlement sits at altitude of about 146 metres. When the Walgett railway line arrived here in 1905 this was a thriving settlement with a variety of businesses including a hotel and stores. For quite a few years it was the loading point for cattle from South West Queensland that were railed to the Sydney market. The railway now only carries freight (grain).
Today only a few buildings remain, together with a wheat silo and several new bunker storages.
The main industry here is wheat farming with some livestock raised, too.
