Jerilderie is an irrigated farming centre in My Riverina.
If you like tomatoes, this is your area as it produces a quarter of all tomatoes grown in Australia!
Jerilderie is also a prime Merino stud region.
And if that wasn’t enough, Jerilderie also has a diverse number of crops including:
- mung and soybeans
Jerilderie is also the home of the biannual Ned Kelly weekend, the Jerilderie Letter Event.
This event was first held in 2006; it is held on the first weekend of February.
The event consists of a parade up the main street, a car bike truck and tractor show and shine, and there is also a small show and farmers market.
One of the main attractions on this weekend is the reading of the famous Jerilderie letter, written by Ned Kelly.
The first Australian Ned Kelly Song writing Awards was a feature of the 2010 event.
