Archaeologists estimate the age of the traps to be 40000. Possibly the oldest man made structure in the world.

Really worth a visit. The oldest man made structures on earth at 40,000 years old. Good description of what they are and how they worked. Lots of reeds cover them when we were there, better viewing when reeds not there. Some remnants still visible.

Very disappointed in the condition of the banks of the river alongside the fish traps. Absolutely covered in nigooraburr, a terrible weed. This made it difficult to get close to traps. Also lots of broken glass strewn about. The traps themselves looked interesting but there...More
