The Boggabri Showground has become a home away from home for many grey nomads who make a pilgrimage to the drovers campfire every year.
All of the visitors have a different story to tell.
Barry and Helen Taege of Ipswich in Queensland said they loved supporting the small town of Boggabri.
"[The event] supports the community [and] we like to support the local community on every rally we go on," Mrs Taege said.
"We've just been up to the local butcher and [Bob's friend] has gone up to the local op shop."
Mr Taege said they also dined at the Boggabri RSL where they were served a "very nice meal".
Wayne and Gillian Lavender of Bellingen, near Coffs Harbour, have been coming for seven years.
"We enjoy looking at the old machinery and being in the company of friendly people," Mr Lavender said.
"We meet the same people year after year."
Merle Adams of Kingscliff has been coming to the event for four years with friends. Among her friends at this year's event were Eileen and Geoff Rose of Warwick and Alan Brooks of Sawtell.
"I've been coming ever since I first heard about it," Ms Adams said.
"We meet different people [and] we gather more friends, they come along to Boggabri and they all enjoy it and then come back.
"It's all about word of mouth."
Tamworth's Angela and Willy Smyth told the NWM this was their second visit.
"You just get to relax for a couple of days, get away from home so you don't have to do any work," Mr Smyth said.
Mrs Smyth agreed with this, and said "you're not on a time limit or obligated to do anything, you can just wander around and do anything you want to do".
The event was founded by Boggabri resident Geoff Eather in 2006, and more than ten years later is still going strong.
