The town of Brewarrina itself lies on a 68km uninterrupted stretch of permanent water on the Barwon River, the longest in New South Wales. Brewarrina is situated where the Barwon River flows through the oldest man-made structure on earth, the Ngunnhu (fish traps). Archaeologists estimate the Ngunnhu to be over 40,000 years old. The Ngunnhu are a great example of human ingenuity from long before recorded time. The banks of the Barwon River at the Ngunnhu was one of the great inter-tribal meeting places in Eastern Australia for Aboriginal people and the Shire is home to the Morawari, Barkinji, Weilwan, Kamilaroi, Koamu, Valarai, Baranbinja, Wiradjuri, Ngemba, and Yualwarri peoples. The Ngunnhu, sustained Aboriginal people during the tribal gatherings held for thousands of years.
