You’ll never be short of things to do in Leeton Shire! During your stay we urge you to visit and enjoy our many local attractions such as local wineries, the RAMSAR listed Fivebough Wetlands, our industry leaders in agriculture, the mighty Murrumbidgee River and the majestic Art Deco Roxy Theatre just to name a few. The friendly team at the Leeton Visitors Centre are only happy to assist you in making your way to any of our wonderful attractions whilst you’re in town.

Leeton is one of the region’s leaders when it comes to community events. It’s rare to find a weekend in town where there isn’t something taking place. Whether it be a small town fete, a monthly market or our enviable biennial Leeton SunRice Festival; Leeton provides numerous opportunities for visitors and locals alike to get out and enjoy the friendly community atmosphere.

The Riverina is one of the most productive and diverse agricultural regions in the country – often referred to as the ‘food bowl of Australia’. The region plays an important role in feeding Australians and the world, with each MIA farmer estimated to feed 600 people and contributing to 38% of NSW’s vegetable production.
