Mungindi lies across the border between Queensland and New South Wales with many of the towns facilities lying in one state or the other. When one crosses the bridge (see Photo Gallery) you can stand straddling both the border and the Barwon River.

As a result of this, the town, despite it's size, has two police stations, one on either side of the bridge representing their respective states.

The name Mungindi is an aboriginal (Kamilaroi) word meaning Water Hole by the River.

Cotton is now a major industry in the district with Namoi Cotton Cooperative having set up a major cotton gin in the town.

As well, the rich country also features wool, beef cattle and wheat as other major industries.

By its very location, Mungindi sometimes finds itself isolated by flood waters. The plaque below, commemorates the completion of a levee bank system that protects the town during such times. The actual monument can be seen in the Photo Gallery

Fishing is one of the major attractions with the fishing spots along the river system between Mungindi and Boomi being amongst the best inland spots in Australia.
