This lovely little NSW country town, on the Riverina Highway near the Victorian border, has a strong and colourful history in the world of horse racing in Australia, and its race meetings are real occasions.
You’ll see some delightful country architecture down this way, including a swag of historic buildings and truly-Australian homesteads, complete with those wide and shady verandahs that are a trademark of the traditional farmhouse.
The town's significant old buildings include a solid brick post office, the Dutch-gabled Federal Hotel and St Aidans Anglican Church whose leadlight windows pay tribute to the region's pioneer settlers.
Berrigan, headquarters of the Berrigan Shire Council, is 50km south-east of Deniliquin on the road to Albury and Wodonga. At the centre of the nation’s largest irrigation complex, Deniliquin’s countryside boasts the famous merino studs of Wanganella and Boonoke.
