If you are looking to get to Brewarrina, why not consider taking the Kamilaroi Highway. Its the only highway boasting an indigenous name in Australia – a 605-kilometre state highway located in the north-western region of New South Wales, Australia.
The Kamilaroi Highway meanders its way from Willow Tree, in the Liverpool Plains, through the lush fertile farmlands of the Liverpool Plains and Gunnedah Shire, through some of New South Wales most productive farmlands in the Narrabri and Walgett Shires, then linking straight into Iconic Outback NSW into Brewarrina and Bourke Shires.
The Kamilaroi Highway is steeped in Indigenous History, dating back 40,000 years, boasting cultural experiences in every town – Gunnedah is the home of the Red Chief and the Rainbow Serpent Water Feature at the front of the Civic Centre and Brewarrina is home to the 40,000 year old Ngunnhu (fish traps) – the oldest man made structure in the world, so be sure to “stop a while, you’ll be surprised”.
Along the way, the Kamilaroi’s iconic towns and settlements give you every excuse to extend your journey over several days, soaking away your cares in Goodooga bore baths, undertaking farm tours, hidden gem coffee shops and shopping experiences. Each town presents its own unique slice of life in the bush.
