What Murrami lacks in size it makes up for in fascinating historical and agricultural insights into the region. Here, you’ll find award-winning Randall’s Organic Rice, as well as Rocking Horse Restorations, the home of long-time local Libby Bailey’s collection of antique and vintage rocking horses (by appointment only).
About halfway between Leeton and Griffith lies the small village of Murrami, where history meets agriculture.
It may be tiny, but Murrami offers plenty for those interested in history and agriculture.
The area’s rice production received accolades when a product grown by Peter Randall, a pioneer of organic rice farming in the region, was entered in the 2017 delicious. Produce Awards. His product, a sticky short-grain rice called Koshihikari, won the From the Earth category. Judge Colin Fassnidge described it as having “great complexity”.
Not far from where the rice is farmed, Libby Bailey began restoring antique rocking horses as a hobby, but her interest soon developed into much more as her talents were recognised internationally.
The small village of Murrami is located 25km from Leeton and is accessible by road following the Irrigation Way.
