Brewarrina Aboriginal Museum

The Brewarrina Aboriginal Museum offers visitors and community members the chance to experience Aboriginal culture first hand in the very spot where local tribes have gathered for thousands of years.

School groups, families and individuals can visit the museum to learn about Dreamtime, tribal language, local Culture, and traditional artefacts. Tours can also be arranged for hour or day-visits, as well as special week-long camps during school holidays.

The Centre is housed in two purpose-built gunyahs (domes shaped to represent traditional Aboriginal housing) and the displays will increase the knowledge of every visitor to the way of life that existed here in the time before European settlement.

It tells the story of Balame’s Ngunnhu, you can see the footprint and understand the shape of the country as the Ngemba people know it.

The Museum also stocks a range of paintings, crafts, artefacts and books for sale, with all proceeds going to support the ongoing operation of the Centre. Local Aboriginal artists are paid for their artistic endeavors by the Centre. The Centre also has products from national and regional Aboriginal companies, making it one of the most versatile Aboriginal retail outlets in the country.

The Brewarrina Business Co-operative is proud of the Aboriginal Museum and the opportunity it affords indigenous and non-indigenous people alike to celebrate a rich, ancient culture and Aboriginal spirit.

The Centre is dedicated to the Aboriginal people, their heritage, and their pride in it.
