The Brewarrina Sesquicentenary 150 Committee would like to thank everyone who participated in the recent celebrations. The numbers of people who travelled back to Bre to join in was absolutely amazing. Accommodation was fully booked and families squeezed a few more in than usual. From all reports it was a great week and everyone had the most fantastic time. Many are asking when we will do it again. Well this committee won’t be around for the 200 Year celebrations but hopefully there will be plenty of younger ones at the time to take it on.  We hope that as it was such a success some organisations will continue their events in the future and ensure  that  “Be in Bre” is the place to be.

Thank you to the Committee who put in tireless hours to bring the celebrations to fruition.

A huge thank you to all the volunteers and sub-committees, who helped before and after the celebrations, because without them we could not have managed all the events we ran.




Due to some technical difficulties the premiere of 'Reflections of a River Town' that was scheduled to screen tonight Monday 22 April has been re-scheduled for Saturday 27 April, to commence at 6.00pm - 8.00pm in the Memorial Park. BYO picnic supper, chairs and rug.
