Goodooga Great Artesian Baths Gates Open

Brewarrina Shire Council is excited to announce, that the much anticipated wait for the Goodooga Great Artesian Baths is now over, with gates now open to the public.

The ongoing success of the Federal Governments Drought Communities Program, the Goodooga Great Artesian Baths project is another example demonstrating the importance economic stimulus from such programs provide to rural and remote communities. Projects such as these have continued social and economic outcomes beyond the initial construction phase, with the potential for Goodooga to now attract visitors and provide a health and leisure facility to the wider community. The construction of the Baths comes at an important time for Goodooga and surrounding communities, with the ongoing and eventual completion of the Goodooga Road construction creating access to not only these facilities but business and activities alike within the community of Goodooga.

Council would also like to remind the public to obey all safety signage and to be observant whilst using the facility due to minor works ongoing during the next week including the addition of seating areas and completion of the shade structure. Council appreciates your patience during the construction phase of the facility and encourages the public to utilise and enjoy the Baths.

An official opening will be held at the Goodooga Great Artesian Baths on the 22nd November 2019.

Welcome to the Brewarrina Shire

Welcome to the Shire of Brewarrina, a rural and remote community located in the outback region of New South Wales on the banks of the Barwon/Darling River.

The shire covers an area of 19,000 square km’s and borders the state line of Queensland and is surrounded by the local governments of Walgett, Warren, Bogan and Bourke.

The shire includes the towns and villages of Brewarrina, Goodooga, Weilmoringle, Angledool and Gongolgon. Brewarrina has great historical significance to the Aboriginal people of the region, as the town was one of the great inter-tribal meeting places of eastern Australia.
The fisheries are elaborate man made stone constructions in the riverbed designed to trap fish. The Brewarrina Fish Traps are a National Heritage listed site and of spiritual significance to Aboriginal people.

The Shire boasts many other attractions like the Old Barwon Bridge, Culgoa National Park, Narran Lakes, Cobb & Co trails, Four Mile Skiing Reserve, Aboriginal Cultural Centre, Visitor Information & Exhibition Centre, Darling River Run, Ochre Bed Pits and the State Heritage Aboriginal Mission just to mention a few.

Many significant events also occur in the Shire including the Brewarrina Races, Barwon River Rodeo, Agricultural Field Day, NAIDOC celebrations, Weilmoringle Cancer Council Tennis Day, Goodooga Wool Day, Bre Big Fish competition and the Bald Archy Art Prize Exhibition.

Brewarrina Shire Council acknowledges and pays its respects to the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work, and to Elders past, present and future.
