Local member for Barwon Kevin Humphries today announced that Boggabri Drovers' Campfire will receive NSW Government funding under the 2016 Regional Flagship Events Program, which aims to increase visitation to the fabulous festivals of regional NSW.

Mr Humphries said the program provides regional events with support for marketing and advertising.

"The Drovers Campfire event plays an important role in Boggabri's economy, helping to attract people to our beautiful area and also showcasing what is unique about our region." Mr Humphries said.

Mr Humphries said in 2015 over 2,200 people attended the event, which has grown considerably since being established in 2006.

"We look forward to welcoming even more visitors for the Drovers Campfire next year which is set to provide a memorable tourism experience and a reason for visitors to plan a return trip again soon," he said.

The event started life in 2006 and was attended by about 29 vehicles/caravans,12 tents and 57 people - what a long way the Event has come.

Congratulations to all involved, this a great outcome and will allow Boggabri Drovers Campfire Committee to be able to promote the Event into new areas.
