Relocate to the Murrumbidgee

Consider a Country Change to the Murrumbidgee Council area.

Hear the Walsh family reflect on their move to Coleambally. They discovered the lifestyle and business advantages of making Murrumbidgee their home.

Murrumbidgee Council is located within a rich and diverse agricultural area bordered by the Riverina and Murray regions, home of NSW’s food bowl. The mix of temperate climate, rural location, food and fibre production, and the natural assets of the Murrumbidgee River and Billabong Creek make the area ideally suited to agricultural production. The area is proud of its deep connection to the land that includes recognition of Indigenous heritage.

The Council area is located between the fertile irrigation and river systems of the Riverina and the dryland agricultural area of the Hay Plains. It covers a geographical area of 6,880 square kilometres (688,302 ha). The Council plays a strong role in providing services and facilities to support those agricultural activities and the families and businesses within the respective communities of the region.

The Murrumbidgee Council area is linked to major markets including Melbourne (approximately 420 kilometres south) and Sydney (approximately 640 kilometres north east). These links have the potential to drive major economic opportunities.
