Toogimbie IPA

The Toogimbie Indigenous Protected Area (IPA) covers 4,600 hectares and includes former pasture lands and contrasting eucalypt-lined creeks, waterways and a floodplain. It was dedicated by the Nari Nari people in 2004.

The traditional life of the Nari Nari people revolved around Toogimbie's wetlands, which are home to totem animals and traditional medicines. The Hay area was once part of a major Indigenous trade route which supported a vast social and cultural network, however much of the cultural history of local Indigenous people was lost following colonisation.

Managed by the Nari Nari Tribal Council Toogimbie’s Murrumbidgee River wetlands belong to the region’s first Lignum floodplains to be set aside for conservation purposes, to support endangered or vulnerable plant and animal species.
