About

Agricultural Tours Riverina

Agricultural Tours Riverina (ATR) is a small, specialist provider of personalised and pre-planned regional learning experiences. The Riverina is one of the most productive and agriculturally diverse regions in Australia – our high-quality tours take in an interesting mix of local agricultural enterprises, and approaches and attitudes to farming, the environment and rural communities.

We know the Riverina – most importantly, where the best farms and enterprises are. Our professional team delivers tour programs that cover rice, nuts, stone fruit, grapes, wineries, citrus, vegetables, juicing plants, agricultural engineering, water management, transport and logistics, cereal cropping, as well as sheep and cattle production throughout the Eastern states.

The Riverina is the largest wine producing region in NSW. The area is also a massive fresh produce enterprise that supplies half the East coast. The food bowl stretches as far as Wagga Wagga in Southwest New South Wales. This entire region can be patronised in its totality by you on one of our bespoke farm tours.

You’ll be able to bottle feed baby animals, study agricultural business and participate in other interactive farm animal experiences. Why not complement your family farm experience with a lesson about irrigation? You’ll find the experience informative, pleasant and one to remember at Agricultural Tours Riverina.
