The Riverina is an area of rich farmland in the south-west of New South Wales, and the Eastern Riverina Chronicle is based in Henty, a town half way between Albury and Wagga Wagga. Settled since the mid 19th century and established as a village in the late 19th century, many German families made their homes here. Henty’s claims to fame include being the area where bushranger Dan “Mad Dog” Morgan operated, and where the header harvester was invented, by local farmer Headlie Taylor. Henty currently has a population of around 800 people.
