About Jerilderie

Historic Jerilderie is on the Newell Highway, about two hours' drive from Wagga Wagga. This Country NSW town is a major merino stud area that produces a diverse range of crops, including a large percentage of the State's tomato crop. It's also the gateway to the 800-km outback highway known as the Kidman Way.

Jerilderie was the only NSW town raided by bushranger Ned Kelly and his gang. Follow the Ned Kelly Raid Trail to learn more about the two-day raid in 1879 – several of the 16 sites along the trail are heritage-listed. Brush up on more colonial history at Ye Old Bank of NSW or the heritage Railway Station, constructed in 1884.

There are plenty of recreational activities in this small town. Play golf or lawn bowls, try some water sports on beautiful Lake Jerilderie, play tennis or picnic in the parklands. In September, the Jerilderie Gold Cup Races is a local highlight.

Stay in town or choose accommodation further out in the Deniliquin area, where you'll find many more heritage locations to explore. Try the Backroads Trail for a self-driving tour of nearby towns including delicious food and wine sampling.
