Tourism will also be on the agenda, with a Deniliquin holiday to be won.
Deniliquin tourism officer Denise Thomas said it’s a wonderful chance for Deniliquin to gain exposure in Sydney and the surrounding areas.
‘‘Last time we were there we had numerous enquires about Deni; people were interested in the facilities, particularly health.
‘‘We’re going to showcase there are lots of job opportunities and employment options.
‘‘We also have permission to take the Ute Muster ute and are able to park it at the front entrance, which will be wonderful.
‘‘The stand won’t just show Deni’s attractions, but what the town is all about.’’
Visitors to the stand will have the chance to win a holiday in Deniliquin, courtesy of Deniliquin BIG4 Holiday Park.
