From the lake, the Water continues to flow down the Molongolo River to join with the mighty Murrumbidgee River,into the Murray Darling Basin and finally into the Southern Ocean. We will share a ceremonial blessing for the Water to remember that All of Life is Sacred and that Water is Life.
Bring a story, a song, a poem or a dance about the Water. Please bring a bottle of Water and a plate of food to share afterwards.

Jerrabomberra Creek just before it enters Lake Burley Griffin which flows down to the Molongolo rivers to join with the mighty Murrumbidgee River at Uriarra Crossing.The name Jerrabomberra is derived from the local Aboriginal place name meaning ‘Boy frightened by storm’. The headwaters of the Murrumbidgee system are regulated by a series of dams that have greatly modified flows & impacted on the health of the river system. The Murrumbidgee drains much of southern NSW. The ACT is an important source of water for the Riverina farming area.
Let’s send our gratitude to the river for its life giving water.
Sunday September 181th 2016 Molonglo & Queanbeyan river BLESSING
Bless the junction of Molonglo & Queanbeyan Rivers.From the Lake it flows down to meet the at Uriarra Crossing with the mighty Murrumbidgee River. The name Molonglo is derived from “Yeal-am-bid-gie” Mooloinggolah name for the river. The suffix ‘bidgee’ was common in Aboriginal languages for rivers in the Canberra area and probably means water or river. The Moolinggolah people of Captains Flat probably gave the river its name.
