Map of Narromine, NSW 2821

Narromine (/næroʊmaɪn/) is a town located approximately 40 kilometres (25 mi) west of Dubbo in the Orana region of New South Wales, Australia. The town is at the centre of Narromine Shire and was last recorded in the 2016 census to have a population of 3,528. Narromine is a rural town that holds strong historical ties to the Australian Military, as it was the location of RAAF No.19 Inland Aircraft Fuel Depot (IAFD) during World War II and contributed to the preparation of troops by contributing to a training organisation known as the Empire Air Training Scheme (EATS). The town was one of twelve locations for the No.5 Elementary Flying Training School RAAF in 1940.The town and its district was formed on Wiradjuri country, one of the largest Indigenous populations in central New South Wales who are traditional owners of the land. The Macquarie River passes through the town. The main road from Dubbo to the west also passes through, this being the Mitchell Highway named after the early explorer Sir Thomas Mitchell. Before settlement in the early 1800s, Wiradjuri tribes occupied much of the land between Wambool/Wambuul (renamed the Macquarie River by late settlers), the Kalar (the Lachlan River) and the Murrumbidgerie (Murrumbidgee River). In December 2021, the NSW government restored its traditional name and formally assigned the name Wambuul to the riverbed of the Macquarie River. The term Wambuul means ‘winding river’ in Wiradjuri language and the names are both recognised with equal status.

There is a history of flooding in the Narromine district, with the largest flood recorded in 1926.
