The Division of New England is an Australian Electoral Division in the state of New South Wales. It is located in the north-east of the state, adjoining the border with Queensland. It includes such towns as Armidale, Ashford, Barraba, Bingara, Bundarra, Glen Innes, Gunnedah, Guyra, Inverell, Manilla, Quirindi, Tamworth, Uralla, Werris Creek, Walcha and Tenterfield. The Division covers a largely rural area, with agriculture the main industry.
The Division was proclaimed in 1900, and was one of the original 75 divisions to be contested at the first Federal election. It is named after the New England region in northern New South Wales. New England's most prominent member was Ian Sinclair, a long serving Country/National Party government minister and party leader.
