Grazing Down the Lachlan
South Condobolin Road, Forbes, NSW, 2871, Australia
22nd September 2018
Following the runaway success of 2017, Grazing Down the Lachlan will return to the banks of the Lachlan River near Forbes. Beneath breathtaking river gums, alongside a tranquil river within a stock route that is synonymous with Wiradjuri Songlines and Drovers, the scene is set once again for this unique event, a degustation spread over seven food stations embedded in a quintessential western landscape. This landmark event will be held on September 22, following a Q and A with the creative director, local farmers and others in the iconic Forbes Town Hall on the evening of September 21, with a main street breakfast the day after on September 22. The creative direction of Mark Olive, Australia’s most renowned Indigenous Chef - host of The Outback Café television series and judge on The Chef's Line ensures the food and beverages will be a sophisticated fusion of both locally farmed produce and foraged native ingredients. Participants will be bused to the site, welcomed to country, then free to wander along a designated corridor of the reserve, enjoying portions of delicious food with a matched beverage before being bused back to Forbes on dusk, having enjoyed a truly amazing experience.
