Mayor of Forbes, Graeme Miller said that he was delighted about the announcement. “This is the second year that the event has received funding from Destination NSW under its Regional Flagship Events Program,” said Graeme.
“The ability of the ‘Grazing Down the Lachlan’ committee to apply and be successful two years running is testament to the quality of the event. It also demonstrates the skills and commitment of individuals on the committee to create and deliver a successful event.”
‘Grazing Down the Lachlan’ is quickly becoming a destination event for Forbes.
Not only does the event showcase local food and wine but it also promotes Forbes’ Wiradjuri heritage and captures the Shire’s stunning natural assets.
