From grazing to small mixed farms, this tour will take you on an agricultural journey to some of the most fertile and productive farms in NSW. The first stop is Belgenny Farm – which was originally owned by John and Elizabeth Macarthur – an opportunity to check out the Merino and Multibreed Sheep flock. The next stop is just up the road at Camden Town Farm to check out the Angus cattle and an amazing riverside vegetation restoration project.
Lunch will be at the Warragamba Dam Visitor Centre where you will learn about Australia’s largest urban water supply dam. The afternoon activities include a quick visit to an organic vegetable farm in Richmond followed by afternoon tea at the Greater Sydney Local Land Services Demonstration Farm where you will hear about the latest onsite soil, weed, native pasture and vegetable production trials.
This field trip includes:
Catering: Morning tea will be provided by Belgenny Farm and lunch will be supplied by a local caterer at Warragamba.
Transport: The coach will depart from the International Convention Centre at 7.30am and will take approximately 1 hr 15 mins to get to Camden which is Stop 1 on the itinerary. The same coach will take you to all other stops in the Hawkesbury/Nepean region, returning to the International Convention Centre by 5.00pm where you are welcome to join other conference delegates at the complementary Welcome Drinks.
