Spanning some 61,435 square kilometres, the Riverina electorate is the third biggest in New South Wales. From the tip of Mount Kosciuszko in the east to the red soil plans near Roto Station in the west, the Riverina is home to a number of productive and diverse industries which make the region one of Australia’s foodbowls as well as a hub for education, defence and tourism.

Our region is the home of the Chicko Roll, the birthplace of the Kelpie, has the world’s largest playable guitar, a world-renowned hydro-electric scheme and has a memorial where a dog sits atop a tuckerbox, waiting for its master. It’s an education hub where students are well-serviced from preschool to PhD and a foodbowl which feeds our region, the nation and the world.

The Riverina electorate encompasses thirteen Local Government Areas: Bland, Carrathool, Coolamon, Gundagai, Junee, Leeton, Murrumbidgee, Narrandera, Temora, Tumbarumba and Tumut Shire Councils as well as Griffith and Wagga Wagg City Councils. Each town unique, independent and proud. And each play their role in making the Riverina the great place it is.

Our region is a showcase of spectacular scenery, gourmet food and wine, historic landmarks and museums, arts and crafts, adventure and sports. With our legendary country hospitality, the Riverina is the ideal place to discover the natural and relaxed feel of contemporary rural Australia.

It features a tantalising mix of the old and new: heritage buildings, contemporary art and theatre, fascinating museums, award-winning restaurants and cafés, haunted mansions, internationally-regarded vineyards, historic trains and planes, unique wildlife and stunning gardens.

The Riverina boasts an action-packed annual calendar of events to cater for all interests: food and wine festivals, racing (horses, dogs, camels, sheep and even yabbies!), jazz festivals, vintage car rallies, steam engine demonstrations, historic military aircraft flying demonstrations, country shows, sheep dog trials, shearing competitions, bush poetry recitals, fishing and shooting competitions, as well as farmers’ markets and gardening festivals.

We are also famous for our love of sport. Whatever your passion, the Riverina boasts first- class facilities and clubs that readily welcome new members.

The Riverina is one of the most productive and diverse agricultural regions in the country, giving rise to our claim as the food bowl of Australia. Buzzing with fabulous restaurants, cafés and clubs that feature local produce, the Riverina is a haven for lovers of fine foods and wines. There are numerous wineries, excellent restaurants and gourmet food producers for you to visit throughout the region.

The Riverina really is one of the nation’s most picturesque regions with much to offer everyone, whatever your passion or interest. It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Riverina region. If there is anything I can help with as your Federal Member of Parliament, please contact my Wagga Wagga or Griffith electorate offices.
