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.

Berrigan Shire's Vision

In 2023 we will be recognised as a Shire that builds on and promotes our natural assets and advantages to create employment and economic activity to attract residents, families and tourists.


The facility we previously used is no longer provided.  We are working on another payment option, but in the interim, if you would like to pay your rates or water via credit card please call the office on 03 5888 5100
