Urana County is one of the 141 Cadastral divisions of New South Wales. It contains the towns of Urana and Bidgeemia.

The name Urana is believed to be derived from a local Aboriginal word,[1] and is referenced in relation to the town of Urana, New South Wales as coming from the Aboriginal word 'airana', meaning a temporary shelter (usually consisting of a simple frame of branches covered with bark, leaves, or grass).[2]
