The Riverina town of Deniliquin sits on the Edward River, about 285km from Melbourne and 725km from Sydney.
An agricultural town, Deniliquin played a major role in Australia's settlement, being an important wool centre and river crossing. During World War II it was a training base for the RAAF.
As the largest town in the region it offers residents a wide range of government and commercial services, and is well serviced by education facilities.
It's also home to the annual Play on the Plains Festival, which includes the famous Deniliquin Ute Muster. As a result it holds world records for the largest number of utes in one location, and the most people wearing blue singlets in one location!
