Brewarrina’s Aboriginal Cultural Museum is experiencing a boom as more visitors book daily tours through the facility.

The Museum also conducts tours of the Brewarrina Rock Fisheries which have been of huge significance to the Aboriginal people of Outback New South Wales for many thousands of years.

Museum Tour Guide, Bradley Hardy, says that people call from all over Australia with great interest in the rock fisheries.

“There was a big surge in interest after the Covid lockdowns ended, and it’s eased off since then, but big numbers of visitors have continued,” Bradley said.

“I love it that there are so many people from all over Australia, and further afield, who want to learn about the history of indigenous people.

“When our ancestors built these fish traps, they were the oldest example of engineering, the oldest man-made structure on earth”.
