Deriah Aboriginal Information Bay is a great introduction to the unique Deriah Aboriginal Area, near Narrabri in north-west NSW. It highlights the natural, cultural and historic heritage of this fascinating region and its importance to the Gamilaraay People. With wheelchair access and seating, it’s ideally-suited for school groups, school excursions and cultural activities for all ages. 

With a series of interpretive signs offering a cultural and historic overview, learn the traditional uses of local native plants as well as local language. Or just sit back and listen to the wind blowing through the ancient dry rainforest as it has for eons. Adapting to the arid climate, this unique rainforest once covered vast tracts of Australia when the megafauna roamed the landscape.

Round off your visit with a drive to Biruu gaba lookout walking track for superb mountain scenery and enjoy a barbecue picnic lunch at Wagun picnic area.
