The Railway

One of the most important events in the history of Brewarrina occurred when the first train departed on 2nd September 1901. The railway was made possible after a petition for the construction was forwarded to the Minister for public Works, Mr. John Lackley, in September 1881. The railways replaced the river trade on the Barwon/darling river carrying large quantities of wool.
