Brewarrina is an aboriginal term for the native gooseberry. In the 1860s Brewarrina was a busy port for shipping wool to Adelaide (captial of South Australia). It's quite the feat of imagination these days to picture river boats making the long journey along the meandering path of the Darling River!
Francis Peter MacCabe (1817-1897) surveyed three of the main rivers in New South Wales: the Murrumbidgee, Darling and Murray. MacCabe Corner is at the junction of South Australia, Victoria and NSW on the Murray River.
