Derriwong: Events

A Bush Tucker Evening Under the Stars


The Central West region of New South Wales has a long standing continuous connection to the stars that spans thousands of years. Yarrabandai Creek Homestead is situated on the traditional lands of the Wiradjuri people.

Archaeological evidence indicates that the Wiradjuri people have been occupying the area for at least 7150 years. They used the stars to understand the world they were living in, the relationship between the sky and land and as a tool to teach the utilisation of the landscape and environment.

That connection continues through the European invasion of Australia where stars were used to navigate through this hostile and unfamiliar land. In July 1969, the Parkes Observatory in the Central West of NSW played an integral role in receiving and broadcasting the images of the moon walk around the world.

In celebration of the Apollo 11 mission they celebrate with a spectacular and uninterrupted view of the night sky, which is unrivalled in most parts of the world.

Guests will be treated to a seven course Bush Tucker feast whilst the crystal clear night sky will be decoded by astronomer Trevor Leaman and delight with stories about the Aboriginal Dreaming and of the Great Celestial Emu.

Grazing Down the Lachlan


Beneath breathtaking red river gums, alongside a tranquil river within a stock route that is synonymous with Wiradjuri Songlines and Drovers, the scene is set once again for this unique event, a degustation spread over seven food stations embedded in a quintessential western landscape.

This landmark event will be held on September 21, following a Q and A with the creative director, local farmers and others in the iconic Forbes SYLO Bar and Cafe on the evening of September 20, with a main street breakfast the day after on September 22 followed by workshops in weaving and dance at the Wiradjuri Dreaming Centre.

The creative direction of OTama Carey, one of Sydney' most respected restaurateurs, ensures the menu will be a sophisticated fusion of both locally farmed produce and foraged native ingredients.

Participants will be bused to the site, welcomed to country, then free to wander along a designated corridor of the reserve, enjoying portions of delicious food with a matched beverage before being bused back to Forbes on dusk, having enjoyed a truly amazing experience.
