BERRIGAN

Berrigan is the next town visited when the traveler continues to head west. A little off the beaten track yes, but a town well worth visiting. A pretty place this Berrigan.

Because of its location near the border Berrigan was one of the pioneers in the push for an Australian Federation due to its centrality, the meeting was held in Corowa.

It is also the birthplace of the NSW Fire Service.

The Churches in Berrigan are a mix of the old and ‘new’.

Once a thriving town with four hotels and the golf club, it has since been reduced to two pubs and the club.

Berrigan is home to a single curlew (bird), which lives in the 18-hole golf course; the bird can often be seen inside the clubhouse while patrons are eating and drinking. Many efforts to find a suitable mate for this bird have been fruitless.

The Berrigan War Memorial is represented by the Memorial Hall and a small cenotaph at the hospital???

The aging population is well catered for in such a small town, with world class hospice and respite facilities provided. While the town thrives on the farming income generated in the district, it is a very modern, and family-friendly town and worth a visit.
