The Liverpool Plains will soon be brightened by a sea of yellow, with a crop of infamous sunflowers ready to bloom at Blackville.
Farmer Alec Pengilley, of 'Belvil' in Blackville, is looking forward to his first sunflower crop since 2017.
They are expected to be in full bloom at the end of March, and visitors from near and far are being welcomed to enjoy the colourful spectacle. They are expected to last for about a month.
"They are welcome to visit as long as they don't trespass and don't leave any litter on the side of the road and they respect [the crop]," Mr Pengilley said.
"They're limited by security; we don't want people trudging through our paddocks potentially bringing soil-borne diseases from other areas of the country.
"They're more than welcome to view it from the road, there's no problem with that."
Alongside his sorghum crop, Mr Pengilley said the sunflowers were severely impacted by the drought.
"Drought was a major impact on all our crops and due to the late nature of the rain in terms of our growing season, the rain fell out of time where sunflowers were the most sensible option for us because it was getting late into the season and it was the time to plant," he said.
Liverpool Plains Visitor Information Centre manager Nikki Robertson has an alert subscription service for tourists interested in seeing the sunflowers, and the news of an upcoming crop has her subscribers excited.
"We've already had a great reaction from people on my database saying 'we're happy to come and support the community'. They want to stay overnight, buy a coffee, see the sunflowers and support us," Ms Robertson said.
"We are getting the word out that the drought isn't over yet [and] the farmers are trying to recover. We want them to spend money but also want to educate them."
When the sunflowers are finished, Mrs Robertson said cotton will be the next drawcard for tourists.
"Cotton will be flowering in April, which is very pretty to see, and the sorghum of course," she said.
"In September, there's lots of canola, which is very bright and colourful, but the sunflowers are everybody's favourite."
