Terrific Traditions of Toogimbie

Toogimbie is a property situated west of Hay along the Murrumbidgee River. Over half of the property is set aside as conservation and cultural areas. Toogimbie Station was taken up by squatters in the mid 1800s and this is when the local Aboriginal people first came into contact with new settlers.

The property was purchased by the Indigenous Land Corporation in 2000 and it is now managed by traditional custodians. The property supports the growth of traditional bush foods and medicines, protect numerous burial sites and artefacts.

Toogimbie is a great example of modern day farming coexisting with Aboriginal cultural land and fragile important wetlands.
