About Brewarrina

Brewarrina is located on the banks of the Barwon–Darling River in Outback NSW. For thousands of years, the area around Brewarrina was a meeting place for many Aboriginal language groups. Estimates suggest that the fish traps that Aboriginal people used to catch fish on the river are as much as 40,000 years old.

Today, fishing and other water sports flourish in the area. The Narran Lakes Nature Reserve, 50 km north-east of Brewarrina, covers about 50,000 hectares. Try fishing for Murray cod, yellowbelly and catfish at Four Mile Reserve, 6 km from Brewarrina, where you'll also find camping and barbecue facilities, a boat ramp, toilets and showers.

If you're looking for a true outback experience, accommodation at Bokhara Hutz, 35 km north of Brewarrina, is the place for any birdwatching, astronomy or bushwalking enthusiast. Stay overnight or enjoy a few days getting involved in station life.

Visit the Brewarrina Aboriginal Cultural Museum to see beautiful handmade artefacts and experience Aboriginal culture firsthand. Café De-Luxe at 87 Bathurst Street in Brewarrina will satisfy any yearning for a mixed grill. Wash it down with Café De-Luxe's famous lemon, orange and pineapple squash.
