Renee Ryan: A vending machine specifically for homeless. Giving these people free access to bottles of water, fruit, toothpaste, toothbrush, toiletries and feminine hygiene products. I lived on the streets of Brisbane for 2 months when I was 17. This would have helped a lot.
Carlos Alpacca: I would like to see a sushi train restaurant that serves iced cold beers.
Megan Byrnes: Aside from me (jokes) some more live music!
Andrew Byrnes, Forbes: Travel the world, first stop Russia!
Trent Hocking, Parkes: Coca Cola and Cameron Smith
Maxi Lambe, Forbes: Buy my own island with my own language. Everyone would be Lambesinese people
John Scott: Church then the Australian Open tennis on television.
Jake Griffiths: Few beers at home.
Benny Griffiths: Recovering from a wedding.
Zac Bray: Keeping it how it is.
Amanda Punch: I always thought of it as a day to spend time with family and friends.
Chris Hodge: As a proud indigenous man, Australia Day has different significance to me.
Prue Baker: Probably spending time with my family and having time off work.
Claudia Cheney: I love the food.
Bec Cheney: Getting together with family.
Andy McNaughton: The Lake is my favourite thing in Forbes, I’m from Port Stephens.
Carol McNaughton: The Lake here is just beautiful, and we are so lucky to be able to camp right by it.
Ross Hendry: Well, I’m originally from Parkes and Coffs Harbour, but I have been on the road for 13 years. What I love about Forbes is the scenery and that it is RV friendly with plenty of areas to camp for free.
Emily Jack: When I am with family, on the weekend at mum and dad’s place near the river.
Sophie Huckel: At work, when I have clients and I’m doing what I love.
Lisa Staines: I am happy when I’m with my family and have my kids all together. On holidays, when my kids are happy, I’m happy.
Jes Evans: Cauliflower and broccoli soup.
Laura Hassell: Beef Stroganoff, but it is a three-hour affair.
Judy Patton from Derriwong with grandsons Huxley and Kit Beard: French vanilla slice would be my signature dish.
Amy Draper: God no, definitely not.
Jodie Elliott: No. I work in social-emotional well being in Condo for Aboriginal health. I think that there are not enough professional services for youth. Once a month care is ridiculous when we are trying to support someone who is suicidal, a Skype video call with a psychologist doesn’t help much and does not encourage those who need help, to seek support. Also, if someone needs regular injections of antipsychotic medication, a once a month visit doesn’t help. There is a massive need for support in our community and the resources simply are not available.
