A village under the Inverell Shire local government area of New South Wales, Gilgai is situated in the Northern Tablelands region, 10 kilometres south of Inverell, 71 kilometres northwest of Warialda, 560 kilometres north of Sydney and 166 kilometres southwest of Tenterfield. Scattered around the area of Gilgai are mine shafts called concertina shafts, which are unique in Australia. They are called such due to the seams of the tin-bearing ore having a zigzag pattern, and were mined following this shape. Precious stones such as sapphires, rubies and some diamonds were also found in the area. Wine grapes were grown in the town in 1849, and re-introduced later in 1968. Today, Gilgai’s primary industry is agriculture, with beef cattle production and wine being its main products.
