Arts, culture and heritage in Henty
Henty is known for its connections with the bushranger Dan 'Mad Dog' Morgan. It's also where Headlie Taylor, a citizen of Henty, invented the grain harvester in 1914. Take the Henty Historical Village Walk to learn more about the town's history.
This country town is located in picturesque wheat and sheep country, halfway between Albury and Wagga Wagga. Henty has quaint antique shops; parkland at Billabong Creek, where you can see local flora and fauna on nature walks; and a museum that provides information about both Henty and the surrounding area.
Each year in September, Henty Field Days attract up to 50,000 visitors to a three-day exhibition of agricultural machinery. It's a fascinating insight into the technical solutions being developed in Australia to manage the challenges of farming on one of the world's driest continents.
