The Discover Farming Festival is an annual agri- tourism celebration during the month of May that offers agricultural and entertainment experiences in the highly productive Goondiwindi region. It provides an opportunity for domestic and international visitors to gain a clearer understanding of the complexity and scale of agriculture in the region, recently branded as "Regional Australia At It's Best".
The Festival highlights quality niche producers of beef, pork, lamb, chickens, dairy products, olives and olive oil, vegetables, grains, cotton, healthy snack foods and lavender and jojoba products. It also features the comprehensive range of ag tech innovations that have originated in the region, from precision farming to remote sensing to state-of-the-art drone technology.
