So where is Berrigan?
Berrigan is a small town, located in the Southern Riverina region of New South Wales, Australia, 30kms north of the Murray River. Melbourne is three hours to the south and Sydney is seven hours to the north east.
It is the home to the offices of the Berrigan Shire Council and close to the Murray River communities of Barooga, Finley, Tocumwal, and Mulwala, with Jerilderie to the north.

BERRIGAN SHIRE IN THE GREEN ZONE
The Victorian government has announced that Berrigan Shire - along with 15 other border local government areas - will be moved into the “Green Zone” from 6pm, Monday 18 January.
What this means is that visitors from Victoria - including Melbourne - can travel to Berrigan Shire and the other border areas without having to isolate until they test negative for COVID-19.
The border checkpoints will remain but border residents and Victorians can travel back and forth across the border - provided they haven’t travelled to an area outside the “Green Zone” in the previous 14 days. Victorians outside the "border bubble" will still need a permit to return but they will not need to isolate or be tested.
While this decision does not address the economic and social pain placed on our community from the New Year’s Eve border shutdown, it does at least go some way towards allowing our business community to start to plan with some confidence - knowing we are once again “open for business” for Victorian visitors.
Your circumstances can vary and Council is not the body responsible for the border closure and its implementation. Specific questions about your individual circumstances regarding the closure should be directed to Service Victoria at their hotline on 1800 675 398. ... See MoreSee Less

The history of Berrigan
The first unofficial record of a school in Berrigan township is believed to have been around 1885, but there is not much information to confirm where or in what capacity this was. The State Government recognises the commencement as 1891 with around 30 students recorded as attending at that time. The growth of Berrigan around […]
This year marks 20 years since the very first Golden Canola Festival, once held in early to mid-September. Although it’s been been several years since the final street parade, it’s hard to forget this once-popular event with all the stunning canola around us during September! Last year we shared a flashback to the very first […]
