Warren is a quiet rural town on the Macquarie River. It services an area dominated by sheep and cotton with wheat, oats, sorghum and maize also being grown. The local Tiger Bay Wetlands are a magnet for birdwatchers.  Nearby one of the largest semi-permanent wetlands in south eastern Australia is the Macquarie Marshes, with extensive areas of reed, cumbungi, river red gum, coolibah and water couch grasslands, supporting over 200 bird species.
