Casino Beef Week Countdown

There is more to the beef industry than the steak on your plate or the meat in your burger. With 10 weeks to go until NCMC Casino Beef Week, plan your trip to the beef capital of Australia, the picturesque town of Casino in northern NSW, for an escape to the country.

The festival is an annual celebration of the iconic Australian beef industry and the rural way of life, held from May 19-29. Taking place over 11 days, NCMC Casino Beef Week provides entertainment, education and an authentic country experience for the whole family. With over 100 vibrant events to enjoy, there is no shortage of fun things to see and do.

Casino is located in the Richmond Valley in Northern NSW. The festival provides a platform to bring people together to connect, learn, taste and celebrate. It is the perfect opportunity to explore this stunning pocket of Australia, which is located an easy drive from Brisbane and the Gold Coast, and just 40 minutes from Ballina and Byron Bay.

President Stuart George is inviting visitors to savour the taste of the country and join the fun things to do that will provide you with memories to last a lifetime.

“The Richmond Valley region is unique by its very nature with its blue skies, vast fields of crops, livestock and the region’s favourite, Casino Beef Week.

“We are currently finalising this year’s festival program which promises to be bigger and better than ever. I encourage everyone to start planning a visit to the region and the fun events that can only be experienced during Beef Week,” Mr George said.
