Leeton and Griffith NSW
Leeton and Griffith in the NSW Riverina district are home to many water and migratory birds. They make use of the canals, ponds and swamps of the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area that supplies this major agricultural area. Fivebough Wetlands at Leeton is a listed Ramsar site, of international importance. Campbells Swamp at Griffith is a very good site for waterbirds. Cocoparra National Park is refuge for many bush and dryland birds.
