Welcome to The Central Darling Shire

Central Darling Shire is the largest Shire in NSW and yet has the smallest population. It covers an area about the size of the main island of Tasmania and yet has a population of less than 2,000 people. The Shire is extremely diverse with four main communities that are all different in their commerce, geography and cultures.

Wilcannia, the administration centre of the Shire has a fascinating history of river heritage having once been the prime port for the shipping of wool for the entire western district of NSW. It has a large number of sandstone buildings and a rich indigenous culture.


A public hearing on the Plan of Management and Lease for 44 Reid Street Wilcannia, to be used as the Baaka Cultural Centre will be held on Tuesday 22 June 2021 at 5.30pm in the Central Darling Shire Council Chambers 21 Reid Street Wilcannia.
