Border Rivers Food & Fibre represents water users from ten different associations in the Macintyre, Dumaresq and Macintyre Brook catchments in both NSW and QLD.


 

This productive region stretches from the Great Dividing Range (Inverell, Glen Innes, Tenterfield, Stanthorpe) down the slopes (Inglewood, Texas, Ashford, Yelarbon) and onto the Western Plains (Goondiwindi, Boggabilla, Talwood, Boomi) to its end at Mungindi. On about 60,000 hectares of irrigated land we grow cotton, wheat, sorghum, lucerne, olives, peanuts, corn, stone and pome fruits, vegetables, wine and table grapes, nuts and citrus.

Our district's population of over 50,000 benefits from the $350M to $400M (farm-gate) generated in a good year, and the more than 3,000 jobs that irrigated agriculture provides in the broader economy.

Irrigation underpins our local economy providing the ability to achieve and maintain the highly attractive lifestyle enjoyed by the residents of the area.
