Welcome to The Jerilderie Shire Council

Discover Jerilderie, rich in history and opportunities.

Jerilderie is known in history as the only place in New South Wales to be visited by the Ned Kelly Gang, and is the origin of Ned’s Jerilderie Letter.

Established in 1859, Jerilderie is nestled on the banks of Australia’s longest creek, the Billabong Creek, and is located on the Newell Highway, which is the main inland route linking Melbourne and Brisbane and is on the shortest route from Adelaide to Sydney.   It is also the commencement of the Kidman Way, the now completed all weather road linking the southern states of Australia with the Northern Territory.

Jerilderie has much to offer in country charm and hospitality.  Establish yourself and your family in our safe and welcoming community.  Take advantage of the lower cost of living, laid back lifestyle and enjoy quality family time in this unspoiled country location.

The town offers a wide range of services for all ages, including excellent schools, medical facilities, a sporting precinct, shopping centre, and magnificent Lake Jerilderie.

The Jerilderie area is responsible for a large contribution to Australia’s fresh produce industry including olives, tomatoes, rice, organic wines, cotton and cereal cropping and has much to offer to facilitate the establishment and success of a wide range of industries.

Whether you are looking to break a long journey; to relax and soak up some unique Australian history and experience country lifestyle; or looking for a “sea change” –Jerilderie has plenty to offer in country charm and hospitality.
