Welcome to the official web site for
The Meeting Of The Rivers
Currawinya is a rural community of over 6200 acres surrounding the junction of the Clarence and Cataract Rivers in Northern New South Wales, Australia. It was purchased from Tom Hamilton in 1976 by a group of idealistic people from Sydney and Perth. It was to become a place for the shareholders to live a family oriented alternative lifestyle. Currawinya is a designated wildlife sanctuary and is accessible to the public by invitation only. The property is held in trust on behalf of the shareholders by the non-profit company Currawinya Pty. Ltd.
Each share is entitled to select a 20 acre area for a home site, which is then approved by the company. The rest of the land is in common for shared use. Certain areas are off limit for home sites, as they are seen to be essential common use areas (eg. places of significant beauty or ecological value that are treasured and accessible by all).
The access is 22km along Paddys Flat Road, which begins at the Bruxner Highway at Tabulam. It is gravel road with some tarred sections. It is easily driven with 2 wheel drive vehicle, although it can be slippery in places during the rainy season.

We agreed all those years ago that we would restore the property to its' former balanced bush / forest condition and reverse the ravages of logging and cattle grazing that resulted in the loss of a safe environment for the native flora and fauna.
