Welcome to Forbes - their town delivers the unexpected and the amazing.

Forbes offers a great range of attractions so you can do as much or as little as you like. The town is situated on Lake Forbes, a natural lagoon on the Lachlan River, offering over 10 kilometres of walking and cycle tracks, abundant birdlife, shaded picnic areas, barbecue facilities, a playground and recreation vehicle rest area. The Lachlan River also offers many great spots for picnics, fishing and bushwalking.

Forbes has a reputation as a unique shopping location, with locally owned boutiques and speciality stores.

The 'Somewhere Down the Lachlan' Sculpture Trail is a significant sculpture project from Forbes to Condobolin via the stock route by the Lachlan River, and Albion Park hosts a curation of sculptures from world renowned artists.

If history and heritage is more your thing, take a stroll through the streets of Forbes where you will find beautiful architecture, providing a look into a bygone era. You may even spy some familiar buildings if you've seen the movie, "The Dish" featuring the Parkes Telescope Satellite.
