Brewarrina Shire Council staff and contractors are currently busy installing a reverse osmosis filtration drinking water refilling station in the Visitor Centre carpark. The filtration system will be used to remove high salt content from the water to make it more palatable for drinking.
Testing of the water will begin early next week and once all drinking water parameter requirements are met, Council will install a drinking water refill point at the shelter next to the unit. This will be available 24/7 to all residents and visitors to replenish their drinking water supplies.
A special thank you to Tenterfield Council who have kindly given us a loan of their unit whilst ours is being constructed and also DPIE Water who have been working closely with Council the last few months to secure this unit. Also we thank all residents for their patience during this prolonged dry period and acknowledge the work currently undertaken by community in sourcing and distributing bottled water also.

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.
