  1. […] will open in mid-June and will be available by downloading from the Registration Page, from the Country Web magazine, and by requesting a registration form to be sent through the post […]

    • Full registration price of $195. However, if paid by the ‘early-bird’ date of 24 August, then you will go into a draw to have your $195 refunded.

  2. What is cost of early bird registration?

  3. Hello Ladies,
    Does the full registration cover accommodation, and I have never been to Parkes, is the train station within walking distance to venue and accommodation

    • I just noticed the accommodation guide, thanks

    • Dear Mary
      The train station is close to the centre of town. Definitely within walking distance of some accommodation. It would be a good walk to the main Gathering venue at Parkes High School.

  4. Hi,
    Is there a registration form?

  5. Hi,
    Have been before and would definitely recommend it to others.
    Are you able, as in the past to send via email registration forms etc?
    If so will pass on my details so I, and others can get in to the weekend.

    Good luck ladies

    Jenny, Junee

    • Hi Jenny

      Yes, we can email the registration form to you. I’ve just added your name to the list of people who have requested forms to be emailed. You should receive by mid-July.

      thanks for your enquiry – we look forward to meeting you in October

    • Hello Joyce
      The registration form is available to download on the Registration page.
      A list of accommodation is available on the Where and When page.
      If you have any trouble booking accommodation please call the Tourist Information Centre on 02 68626000.

  7. Please, is it possible to book some men in to the Saturday night Gala and dinner only (partners of fully registered women). We are nearly local (Quandialla) and the fellows thought that it would be nice to drive over just for Saturday night.
