Designed in 1914 by renowned urban planner and architect Walter Burley Griffin, Leeton owes its existence to the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area. Leeton has 102 hectares of public parks and reserves and many impressive, well preserved examples of art deco architecture. Walk around town to view the 21 buildings listed in the register of the Art Deco Society of New South Wales. Leeton is also one of Australia's richest food producing areas. Make sure you visit a local winery or call in to the Leeton Visitors Information Centre to take part in their "Tastes of Leeton" demonstration.
