About The Area


Finley is a quiet Riverina town which acts as an important service centre for the Berriquin Irrigation Area that surrounds it. The district supplies wool, wheat, fat lambs, rice, dairy products, vegetables, cereals, canola, cattle and pigs to the Sydney and Melbourne markets. The visitor will find the Finley Railway Museum genuinely interesting and the local parks, particularly those beside the lakes and lagoons, are ideal for travellers wanting to stop for a picnic.


Berrigan is a traditional and charming small country town surrounded by rich agricultural land known for its rice production, vineyards, maize, grapefruit, potatoes, cherries, tomatoes and dairy cattle. The primary appeal of the town is the way it has been held in aspic. It is a town which still belongs in the 1950s ... a reminder of a simpler way of life.


Jerilderie, which is located on the Newell Highway in the heart of the Riverina, is famous for its connections with Ned Kelly. It is reputedly the only town in New South Wales where Ned Kelly and his gang robbed the local bank and Ned's famous defence of his lifestyle and explanation for why he became a bushranger is known as the Jerilderie Letter because it was during the robbery that he handed it over hoping that it would be published.
