Brewarrina Aboriginal Cultural Museum

The Brewarrina Aboriginal Cultural Museum is located on a site that has been significant to Aboriginal people in northwestern New South Wales for tens of thousands of years.

The Brewarrina Aboriginal and Cultural Museum is a no-holds-barred Indigenous account of Australia’s history from the beginning of time to the present. It depicts a moving story. Indigenous Outback legends are told through a combination of storytelling, guided tours, audio visual technology, and personal reminiscence. The journey through time is fraught with emotion – expect deep sadness, anger, wonder, and laughter, as well as a genuine sense of Indigenous Australians’ perseverance and survival.

Above all, expect to find hope for an Australian culture, and indeed a world culture, based on genuine and mutual respect. In the ancient tradition of storytelling, the Ngemba, Ualarai, Weilwan, and Baranbinja people follow in the footsteps of their forefathers, sharing stories that many thought had been forgotten. These are true stories, and they are significant. These are the stories of all Australians.

About the Company

The Brewarrina Aboriginal Corporation (BAC) was formed to assist the Brewarrina Aboriginal Cultural Museum Trust in the management of the Crown Land Museum Reserve and buildings (Res-230001) and the Aboriginal Fish Trap Reserve (Res-230074).

The Museum reserve and fish traps hold cultural and spiritual significance for local Aboriginals who identify as Ngemba, Ualarai, Murrawarri, Gamilaroi, Baranbinja, Koama, Weliwan, Kula, and Baarkkinji from the Brewarrina region.

The Brewarrina Aboriginal Corporation’s goal is for Elders to support and mentor younger members of the community in becoming active board members who make decisions about their community.

BAC is a registered charity under the Corporations (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander) Act 2006 (ORIC) and the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC)

Riverbank Coffee Shop & Gifts

The Riverbank Coffee Bar and Gifts is a relatively new addition to our operations. Enjoy a coffee made by our team (all of whom are Barrista trained), relax in the grounds, and talk with locals who will share their experiences of life in “Bre.” We also have gift lines, traditional paintings, and artifacts designed by local artists.
