Landmark Killarney Gap Bike Classic

Narrabri

Killarney Bike Classic, Narrabri NSW

Come and experience the thrill of joining us in this charity bike ride down Killarney Gap, not to mention the spectacular scenery on the way. Enjoy riding with a group and making new friends in the fresh air of North West New South Wales.

The Killarney Bike Classic started ten years ago to raise funds for local cancer groups and also as a way to remember local farmer, grazier and friend Mark Lampe, who rode from Killarney Gap to Sawn Rocks with a group of friends for an Easter get together with their families. Less than three months later, Mark lost his short battle with cancer. Mark grew up in Narrabri and loved the district. He would be so proud of the effort and support from so many people that will help make other families lives a little bit easier when they have to face the battle with cancer.

Back to Bri Festival Long Weekend in October

Narrabri

A major new Narrabri community festival to be held on the October long weekend is to be launched this year.

The festival, ‘Back to the ‘Bri’ will aim to encourage former residents to return to town for the weekend, offer special shopping promotions and stage a carnival program of entertainment.

The impetus for the new festival came from the Narrabri Chamber of Commerce whose members saw the need to replace the Chamber’s traditional Maitland Street Christmas Carnival with a community event at a less climatically challenging time of year.

Chamber members have felt that Christmas weather is too hot and often too stormy to make the most of the function.

Many Carnival goers and shoppers have agreed.

The Chamber is planning ‘Back to the ‘Bri to be a ‘Narrabri inclusive’ weekend, drawing residents and visitors and encouraging former
residents to return to town.

“It will be an all of Narrabri event,” said Chamber president Russell Stewart.

“We would like to see it become a weekend where ex-Narrabri people come back, visit family, meet friends and shop in town. It will be a community festival and a carnival weekend.”

The Chamber is planning a program of events to entertain and engage and encourage local shopping.
