The name Merrigum is thought to be derived from an Aboriginal word meaning little plain. Its primary industries are fruit growing and dairy farming. Visitors to Merrigum can be taken back in time with a visit to the Merrigum Museum which provides an extraordinary range of displays from the past.
Eat like a local at the Railway Hotel or picnic with the family in the park across the road as you explore some of the Moooving Art herd in Judd Park. In the warmer months, cool off at the Merrigum Pool and Splash Park.
