Community Outreach Events - Farming and drought support
The National Recovery and Resilience Agency and Rotary Australia Community Outreach Events are coming to local communities in July to provide support and advice on the drought, bushfire, flood and challenges like COVID-19.
These events will bring together all levels of government, charities, not-for-profit and agricultural organisations to support farmers and rural and regional communities living through the immediate and longer-term effects of drought.
It is an excellent opportunity for farmers, families and rural communities to grab a sausage sandwich, catch up with friends and neighbours and find out what support is available during drought and tough times. ; they will also distribute $500 vouchers to eligible farmers, farm workers and farm employees.
The Community Outreach Events are part of the Australian Government’s Drought Community Outreach Program.

Riverina Classic 2022 Fishing Comp
The 2022 Riverina Classic Fishing Competition will be the 9th Annual event happening on the 11th, 12th & 13th February 2022. Due to the current climate it will be an online event, so you can fish for Murray Cod, Golden Perch and Carp anywhere in Australia and still enter the Riverina Classic.
The Riverina Classic Catch and Release Fishing Competition is a great 3 days of fishing over a weekend in February each year. As a charity event proceeds are distributed to a chosen charity each year & also used to re-stock the Murrumbidgee River with native fingerlings securing a healthy and sustainable fishing future.
As a full photo entry competition, anglers have better flexibility on fishing hours & the entry of over-sized cod can be accepted in the competition as the survival rate of catch & release fish is increased by reducing the amount of time the fish spends in captivity.
Date Location Friday, February 11, 2022 All Day Murrumbidgee River, Darlington Point
