About Trangie

About Trangie

Trangie is a small country service centre located on the Mitchell Highway about 500km north-west of Sydney as is part of the Macquarie Valley Irrigation Area. Neighbouring towns include Narromine, 35km to the south-east, and Nyngan, 90km to the northwest.

A small town of approximately 1,100 people, it is dominated visually by the Trangie silo which is testament to Trangie’s location with the renowned wheat area of Narromine. In addition to wheat, other agricultural activities include cotton, wool, sorghum, and fat lambs.

In terms of indigenous culture, the area is that of the Wongaibon people prior to white settlement. 'Trangie' is an indigenous word said to mean 'quick'.

European development is the town and region stems back to 'Weemaabah' station, established, in the 1830s, with the Cobb & Co. Coaches passing through the property on the route from Dubbo to Bourke, however a township did not develop until the railway arrived in 1882; an initiative that greatly benefitted local wool producers.

In 1915 a 4000 ha experimental farm was established in Trangie the farm was at the forefront of technological changes which came to the district, driving the expansion of livestock and cropping industries. Today research at TARC continues to transform the way we live and farm.
