Centenary of FederationPrint Page
A arch and plaque commemorate the centenary of the federation of the Australian colonies in 1901 and acknowledges the Berrigan Federation Leagues.
Because of its location near the border with Victoria, Berrigan was one of the pioneers in the push for an Australian Federation. It was at the suggestion of the Berrigan Australian Natives` Association that the first meeting of the Federation League was held. Due to its centrality, the meeting was held in Corowa.
