Six people will face court today after almost $22 million worth of cannabis plants were seized near the north-west NSW town of Narrabri. 

Police said officers found almost 11,000 cannabis plants and a quantity of cannabis seeds when they raided a remote property on Killarney Gap Road at Rock Creek on Thursday at 3am.

Five men aged 28, 33, 35, 45 and 56 and a 41-year-old woman were arrested.

The six people were charged with knowingly taking part in cultivating large quantities of cannabis and were refused bail.

They will face Tamworth Local Court this morning.

The arrests follow extensive police inquiries that began in September with the formation of Strike Force Lyretrail.

More to come.
