Families enjoyed the many activities and stalls, with produce and plants available and a host of free entertainment for children.

Murchison Community Care was formed in 1997 and is a non-profit charitable organisation incorporated under the Victorian Incorporation Act 1981.
It is an approved nursing home operator with the Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing.
Originally a Bush Nursing Hospital, the D. P. Jones Nursing Home was built by the Bush Nursing Hospital Committee and officially opened in 1982.
The nursing home has operated as an independent facility since 1986.
With the closing of the acute hospital in April 1995 and the need to maximise the operations to provide as wide a range of services as possible, the two organisations agreed to amalgamate to form Murchison Community Care Inc.
Today it is a 40-bed aged care facility, a medical centre which provides rooms for a doctor and visiting services, and Murchison and District Neighbourhood House with Maternal and Child Health operates from the former Bush Nursing Hospital.
There is a community bus available for health, education and recreational purposes.
