Shire-wide Wings ‘n’ Things Bird and Bush Festival

April 12, 2013

Gwydir Shire Council is proud to announce its first Shirewide event, the Wings ‘n Things Bird and Bush Festival. The event will be held over the October long weekend (October 4 to 7) and will showcase our beautiful bird routes and amazing Shire.

Events already being planned for the festival include a ‘Galah’ Dinner will be held at the Living Classroom in Bingara. A Bush Poets’ Breakfast will also be held at Cranky Rock Nature Reserve, Warialda.

There will be a scarecrow competition leading up to the event. The scarecrow entries will be displayed throughout the Shire and the winners will be announced at Gravesend on Sunday October 6.

Community groups, organisations and businesses are all encouraged to be a part of this event. Suggestions include running a workshop, holding a kite flying afternoon, hosting bird watching tours. Any celebration which relates to the theme, Wings ‘n Things or the bush.

If you would like to participate or, have some great ideas to share, we would love to hear from you either by contacting us or attending the Gwydir Events and Tourism Committee Meeting on April 19 at 3:30pm in the Bingara Council Chambers.

We can offer assistance with all aspects of planning and promotion of your event.
