Situated on the banks of the Barwon River, and home to the Kamilaroi Highway, Brewarrina is steeped in history and has plenty of natural and man-made attractions.

Brewarrina is strongly grounded to its indigenous heritage and was once one of the great inter-tribal meeting points for Aboriginal people in Eastern Australia. More than half of the population in the region identify as Aboriginal.

Agriculture and wool production remain viable sectors today. These days, there is a friendly and relaxed lifestyle, access to national park land and recreation areas including good boating, fishing and camping spots.
