We’re running a series of farm tours next month to coincide with Walgetts’ “Bulldust to Bitumen” festival to lift the profile of ag in the district. For locals and travelers passing through, if you would like to know more about farming, here is your chance.
Visitors on the tour can expect to see a number of winter crops in rotation on a broad acre scale. Also the machinery and the handling facilities of the operation.
20 questions is the order of the tour. There will be much discussion about crops, farming practices and how our farm system has evolved.
The Walgett Farm Tour is set for Monday 7th, Wednesday 9th, and Friday 11th August, 2017.
The bus leaves Walgett Sporting Club at 9am and returns at 12.30pm.
Cost is $20 per person paid upon booking. Bookings can be made at the Walgett Visitor Information Centre. Phone 0268 286 139
