The Riverina is proud to celebrate heritage and culture. Our communities are built on the passion, innovation and achievement of those who came before us. Historical experiences are not hard to find, whether it is a heritage trail celebrating architecture in Ariah Park, homesteads preserving pioneer history in Willandra or dramatic events immortalised in Jerilderie.
The fabric of our communities can be found in our agricultural history and innovation. See the inner workings of a cotton gin in Leeton, a power station at Snowy Valleys’ Murray 2 or be transported back in time at Pioneer Park Open Air Museum.
The Riverina sits within Wiradjuri Nation, the largest indigenous areas in New South Wales. Known as the “people of three rivers”, the Wiradjuri people have deep connections with the Murrumbidgee River, the Lachlan River and the Macquarie River.
Wiradjuri culture, experiences, historical sites and places of significance can be found across The Riverina and we encourage you to respectfully enjoy these sites and the region.
