The first ever Grazing Down the Lachlan will be held along the banks of the Lachlan River at Forbes. Beneath breathtaking river gums, alongside a tranquil river and within a stock route that is synonymous with Wiradjuri Songlines and Drovers, the scene is set for what is to be an epic long lunch.
The meandering Lachlan River is the unique location for an exciting new food event which is set to blow the minds of the most adventurous connoisseurs of fine food. Consisting of seven food stations, guests will be treated to an experience like no other. The food will be authentic, of the place, sophisticated in its simplicity showcasing both farmed and foraged native foods.
Under the creative direction and vision of renowned Sydney chefs O Tama Carey (Chef and SBS food writer) and Mat Lindsay (Ester Restaurant and Bar), this gastronomic feast offers a diverse menu. Participants will be welcomed to country, then free to wander along a designated corridor of the reserve, enjoying portions of delicious food with a matched beverage. Guests will then be transported by bus back to Forbes on dusk, having enjoyed a truly amazing experience, embedded in nature.
