Community Overview

The rural towns of Coleambally, Darlington Point and Jerilderie provide the backdrop for one progressive and innovative community to thrive.

The region is home to a variety of agricultural industries including rice and cotton, with strong interest in solar farm and biomass investment.

Murrumbidgee Council is a dynamic region filled with natural beauty, historical significance and untapped potential for growth.

Community and infrastructure assets include health, aged care support, access to modern library services, swimming pools and a range of quality educational facilities.

Working closely with residents, Council seeks to establish and strengthen networks to build a robust, vibrant and cohesive community.

The premium Wunnamurra Housing Estate in Jerilderie and the new Darlington Point Town Structure Plan demonstrate promise for growth across the region.
