Yabby Delving

Delving is a common practice in rural areas where bore drains supply water for livestock. It’s main objective is to maintain the cleanliness and unobstructed flow of the bore drain!

Beyond its practical purposes, delving creates a fun community activity! Adults and children line the bore drains with buckets at the ready, following the delver and picking up yabbies, fish and turtles as they are scooped out over the edge. Make sure to bring some gumboots and a bucket! If you’re successful, why not try your hand at some campfire cooking – our yabbies make a delicious linguine!
