Highways in New South Wales
The Newell Highway is named in honour of H. H. Newell, the NSW Commissioner of Main Roads from 1932 until 1941.
The highway runs parallel to the eastern coast about 400 kilometres (250 mi) inland, and is the main inland direct road link from Victoria to Queensland, bypassing the more congested coastal areas of New South Wales. It runs through Boggabilla, Moree, Narrabri, Coonabarabran, Gilgandra, Dubbo, Parkes, Forbes, West Wyalong, Narrandera and Jerilderie.
