Corowa is located on the Murray River 50 kms downstream from Albury. Mixed farming enterprises dominate the agricultural sector of Corowa Shire, and farms occupy the majority of the rural land.
Whilst agriculture is a major employer accounting for over 18.9% of all jobs, the traditional dominance of agriculture in the rural economy is less pronounced than in other rural Shires in NSW.
Corowa is home to several companies in the agricultural and allied industries, such as Bunge Meat Industries which is largest supplier of pork in Australia. Uncle Tobys has their company plant over in Wahgunyah and the north east is prime wine making territory, with the Rutherglen area supporting 16 wineries.
