A Foodie Adventure
WELCOME TO GRAZING DOWN THE LACHLAN
Beneath the river gums, alongside a tranquil river - the scene is set for what is to be an epic long lunch. The multi-award winning Grazing Down the Lachlan (GDTL) will return to the banks of the Lachlan River in Forbes NSW on Saturday 16 September 2023.
WELCOME TO COUNTRY
Our guests ('Grazers') are transported by bus out to site, 20 kilometres from Forbes, in an effort to minimise our impact on the natural environment.
Grazers are Welcomed to Country and are then free to wander along the 2.5 kilometre bush track between six stations offering delicious food with a matched beverage. Guests will be transported back to Forbes on dusk, having enjoyed a truly amazing experience, embedded in nature.
What makes this dining experience truly unique is the underlying commitment to delivering a zero-waste, environmentally responsible event.
Grazers are supplied with an event bag made from recycled fabric, which contains an enamel plate, recycled fork, donated drink bottle, event wine glass and lanyard, a menu map, and a napkin made from donated linens. At the final station, Grazers are encouraged to donate their reusable service items back to Grazing to be used again the following year. It’s our small contribution to the War On Waste!
The proceeds of our event support the Forbes Arts Society in the delivery of purposeful art and cultural initiatives and infrastructure.
Funds raised through Grazing Down the Lachlan to-date have facilitated the commissioning of 20 new sculptures to extend the Sculpture Down the Lachlan public art trail, the redevelopment of Gum Swamp reserve, and the construction of a new Cultural and Arts Centre.
GRAZING DOWN THE LACHLAN IS A FULL WEEKEND OF CELEBRATING OUR HERITAGE
