We made Brewarrina a day trip from Bourke, which was just right for what there was to do there.
We had booked a tour with the Aboriginal Cultural Museum and found Brad to be a knowledgeable and interesting tour guide. Brad welcomed questions and answered them thoughtfully.
The museum is in two earth covered buildings, and parts were undergoing renovation/repair while we were there. However, that didn't take anything away from the great displays in them.
Since the Barwon River was fairly high, the fish traps couldn't be seen but the museum has models, photos and demonstrations to show how they work. (We had seen the fish traps in 2002 during a drought year.)
Definitely worth visiting when in Brewarrina.

Brewarrina is an interesting town, becoming recognised now for its indigenous history and the famed Brewarrina fish traps, said to be earth’s earliest man-made facility and used by the original indigenous inhabitants to catch, hold, and farm fish in the Darling River. We wanted to visit and see the famed site which you do by booking the Indigenous Tour setting out from its office on the banks of the river at the edge of town. Our guide was fantastic and over an hour or so told us about the history and culture of the area. There is a small on-site museum with artefacts and old photographs. All in all a very good visit but unfortunately we could not see the fish traps as the river was in flood and they were well submerged but they do have models and old photos of the area. We were there on a weekend and there is not much in Brewarrina and we could find nowhere open for lunch we ended up going on to Bourke.

How do you spell a few moments within the visitor centre, the gentleman inside was friendly but a phone call was way more important than anyone else in the room… Lots of art for sale some of it looked really good. Unfortunate was unable to take a tour as I did need to leave… A great experience and possibly will pass through again

Had a mind blowing tour of the museum and fish traps with Bradly and Brad. A wealth of knowledge and history that we all need to have access too.
Massive highlight of my stay in Bree!!

The museum offers a well-priced cultural tour that takes in the museum itself - artefacts, photos, sobering stories - and then the fish traps. Bradley, the guide, provides a great in-a-nutshell overview of indigenous history of the area, with the focus of course being on the traps. It was a real highlight. Don't miss it.

Check times and book tour.
Bradley (guide) gave us a great tour, giving you a good understanding of the fish traps, and also the difficulties experienced over the past 200 years.
The fish traps are slowing losing their shape, so seeing the museum display gives you a better sense of their scale and design, as well as understanding how important a feature they are.
There are limited artifacts for sale at the museum.

You should do a tour if you truly want to understand the fish traps. Bradley was a great tour guide. Very engaging and he makes the aboriginal culture much easier to understand. A tour well worth doing.
