The 2004 redistribution of electoral districts estimated that the electoral district would have 48,049 electors on 29 April 2007.
At the 2007 election it encompassed Warrumbungle Shire (including Coonabarabran, Binnaway, Coolah, Dunedoo and Mendooran), almost all of Narrabri Shire (including Narrabri and Wee Waa), Moree Plains Shire (including Moree), Gilgandra Shire, Coonamble Shire, Walgett Shire, Brewarrina Shire, Bourke Shire, Cobar Shire, Bogan Shire, Warren Shire, some of Narromine Shire (including Trangie) and almost all of Lachlan Shire (including Condobolin).
Barwon was originally created in 1894, when it along with Moree, replaced Gwydir. In 1904, with the downsizing of the Legislative Assembly after Federation, Gwydir was recreated and Moree and Barwon were abolished. In 1927, with the breakup of the three-member Electoral district of Namoi, it was recreated.
