The Wiradjuri people are the people of the three rivers – the Wambool (Macquarie), the Calare/Kalari (Lachlan) and the Murrumbidgee. The Bathurst Regional Council Local Government Area encompasses part of the land of the Wiradjuri people.
The Wiradjuri have lived in these lands, encompassing the three rivers for more than 40,000 years.
The local Wiradjuri Elders promote the cultural heritage and customs within the Bathurst area. The Elders provide community consultation and uphold the traditional values and customs for the benefit of the Bathurst and surrounding communities.
