Industry in the region is predominately agricultural with some of the most innovative irrigated farming practices in Australia.

Berrigan is a very modern, and family-friendly town, with many young families in the district.

Berrigan is also home to an ageing population, with locals, district farmers and others enjoying the benefits of the small community

Many grey nomads choose to retire here, returning at the end of their travels to settle in the region. 

When asked what drew them to live in Berrigan invariably the answer is the warm and welcoming nature of the residents.
