Namoi River

Description

Description:
The data from this study region includes 7 oral histories (audio as mp3s, and transcripts) and 4 image galleries, as well as a georeferenced hand-drawn map of the area.

The Namoi River is fed by the rivers of the western slopes of the Great Dividing range from whence it winds its way through 42 000 square kilometres of blacksoil plain in the north east of New South Wales.

This region is the traditional lands of the Gamilaraay people. The Namoi today is a very different river to the one the Gamilaraay people once knew and fished. Now its flows are held by Split Rock, Keepit and Chaffey Dams and numerous weirs, as water is diverted to irrigate cotton.
