Berrigan Shire is situated in the Southern Riverina and consists predominantly of irrigated rural land, therefore its main income is derived from the agriculture industry.  Berrigan Shire is located to the north of the Murray River, half way between Albury and Echuca.

The council boundaries encompass the towns of Barooga, Berrigan, Finley and Tocumwal which offer a range of first class lifestyle opportunities including recreation, health and education facilities.We welcome you to our website and hope you take the time to explore the site and learn more about Berrigan Shire Council.



Council staff has completed an additional water main, to connect the Finley township to the treated water supply. The connection is part of ongoing water main works to be completed at the corner of Tuppal Street (Riverina Highway) and Denison Street. Council staff are planning to isolate the treated water main in this area and complete planned works started in late June. Works will be planned to isolate the minimum number of residents when the shutdown occurs in early August.

Affected residents will be doorknocked PRIOR to the event and arrangements made to ensure drinking water is available for essential purposes. Preliminary investigations has identified up to 20 residents will be affected with this second shutdown.

Residents with concerns about Council’ operations in relation to these additional main replacement works are advised to contact the Council and speak with the Environmental Engineer.


In the coming weeks the power over the playground at Memorial Park will be relocated underground to make way for the installation of a shade sail.  During this time the playground will be closed to the public, however we envisage this to only be for the day.  An exact date is still to be confirmed.
