IFEA World Festival And Event City Award : Annual Report
Regional NSW has some of Australia’s best home grown events that capture the heart and soul of the nation. The 2011 NSW Events Calendar includes 23 regional events, representing over 30 per cent of the Calendar, injecting more than $60 million of economic benefit to the State, concentrating in and around regional centres. We have Australian and international surfing professionals competing at Surfest in Newcastle and the FIA World Rally Championships showcasing the Coffs Coast to an international television audience across the globe. Regional events also attract big name international acts with Kenny Rogers heading to the Tamworth Country Music Festival, Bob Dylan at Bluesfest Byron Bay and Alan Jackson and Miranda Lambert headlining CMC Rocks the Hunter in 2011.
