Transport and Industry
Parilla is on the Mallee Highway and Pinnaroo railway line between Lameroo and Pinnaroo. Parilla has traditionally been a local centre for grain growing, although it is now known for growing vegetables such as potatoes, carrots, and onions. There are bulk grain silos adjacent to the railway line, however grain is freighted out by road, as are vegetables.
