Lachlan Vintage Village

The Lachlan Vintage Village is a property on the Newell Highway in Forbes NSW Australia.

The Village is no longer open to the public and the buildings are no longer available for hire.

In July 2017 the Village was sold to the Forbes Shire Council (tele (02) 6850 2300). The property presents some unique opportunities for land use and development.
