The Brewarrina fish traps are estimated to be over 40,000 years old and one of the oldest man-made structures on earth. This elaborate network of rock weirs and pools stretches for around half a kilometre along the riverbed and was built by ancient tribes, to catch fish as they swam upstream.
Each year they hold a festival here in Brewarrina, of the local Indigenous cultures and the ancient fish traps (Biaime's Ngunnhu). 2020 is the fifth year and one which promises to be particularly great given the recent flows of water through Brewarrina and beyond.
Join them for a weekend of celebration, including Corroboree, Creative arts and a Sunday Concert. See their post on the Bre News facebook page for more information.
