The annual celebration of our mighty river system, Nogoa November, will be held at the Emerald Botanic Gardens on Saturday 26 November 2022 from 8.00 am to 12.00 pm.
There will be a variety of educational stalls, activities for kids of all ages, giveaways and a free sausage sizzle.
‘Nogoa November is one of my favourite events of the year!’ said Mayor Kerry Hayes,
‘Without our beautiful river system, we wouldn’t be the thriving region we are today.’
The Nogoa River rises on the Carnarvon Range southwest of Springsure and flows generally north-easterly towards Emerald. Connecting to the Comet River, and the Mackenzie River, the Nogoa descends 361 metres and spans over 569 kilometres.
The construction of dams and weirs along the river system has created irrigation allocation for communities, industry, and agriculture and yet maintains sufficient water for our natural environment, making it one of the best-managed catchments in the nation.
That’s a great reason to celebrate and our beautiful Botanic Gardens is the place to do it.
Entry to the celebration is free.
