Home > Resources > Wurridjal Weekend Festival 2022

It’s mullet season on the Cooks River and the Wurridjal Weekend festival 2022 is here for the 26th and 27th of March!  Due to COVID-19 and unpredictable weather, the 2022 festival is limited to the weekend with a series of exciting online and in-person activities.

Note that many events have limited capacity because of COVID regulations, so advance booking is required.

The festival marks the start of a season when thousands of mullet – known as ‘wurridjal’ in the Aboriginal languages spoken in the Sydney region – enter the Cooks River during their pre-spawning migration along the east coast of Australia. For thousands of years the river was healthy and a source of food for Aboriginal people.

From caring for country activities and cultural learning experiences, to wildlife encounters and riverside recreation, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
