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.

Sustainable Grazing

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!

Supporting arts and culture locally

The proceeds of our event support the Forbes Arts Society in the delivery of purposeful
art and cultural initiatives and infrastructure.
