Inland southern NSW - Edward River area

Video Transcript

If you think living in a rural area means the absence of water activities, think again. Located in the south-west Riverina region of NSW, the picturesque Edward River is a tributary of the Murray River. An area interlaced with rivers, creeks and lagoons, this natural aquatic playground attracts canoeists, kayakers, skiers, swimmers, fishing enthusiasts and bushwalkers.

Imagine finishing work at your local school and heading down to the river to enjoy a ride on a houseboat or pontoon boat – or perhaps relaxing in a canoe as you paddle through the forest teeming with bird and native wildlife.

The Edward River area embraces charming townships surrounding the thriving community of Deniliquin where access to all major services is readily available. Low-cost housing is only one of the many unsurpassed lifestyle opportunities.

Many schools in this area boast rich traditions yet enjoy all the latest technology and resources, benefiting both students and staff alike.

Working at a local school, you’ll not only enhance your career but you could also be eligible for a 50 per cent rental subsidy or a rural teacher incentive with a value of $20,000 per annum and more.

Towns include:

'What we like most about living here is the lifestyle itself. It’s very laid back with friendly locals. When friends come to visit we usually take them to see the Deni Ute Muster, the Riverwalk, take a houseboat or go fishing on the river.'
