Nominations for Australia's Legendairy Capital closing 5pm Monday, April 10.​

People across Australia’s eight dairy regions have less than one week to submit their nominations to go into the running to be Australia’s Legendairy Capital of 2017, with nominations closing 5pm Monday, April 10.

Dairy Australia is calling on everyone from community leaders to councils, dairy farmers and schools to nominate their town for the prestigious title by sharing stories about what makes their town Legendairy.

The Legendairy Capital program, run by Dairy Australia, celebrates regional communities by supporting community initiatives and highlighting how dairyfarmers contribute to their town, industry and the Australian economy.

Australia’s dairy regions - including Gippsland, south-west Victoria, the Murray region, Tasmania, New South Wales, South Australia, Western Australia and the Subtropical region - are invited to nominate their town for the prestigious title by sharing stories about what makes their town Legendairy.

One finalist from each of the eight regions will receive $2500 to invest in a community project, and one of those towns will then go on to secure the coveted title of Australia's Legendairy Capital 2017, receiving an additional grant of $7500.

Nominations are open until 5pm on April 10. For more information on Australia’s Legendairy Capital program, including details on how to nominate, visit:
