Scott Ferguson said that the event symbolises the true meaning of community.

“It’s where the power of connection, a spirit of adventure, relationship building and working collaboratively has delivered significant benefits to the area through visitation, economic growth and development to our small, rural area,” he said.

Event Organiser, Melanie Monico said that it was truly a great honour to be recognised as a national finalist.

“This accolade showcases the dedication, passion and commitment of a small group of locals with a shared vision.”
