2023 Ag Town of the Year Winner
“It is clear to see why the town is affectionately known as ‘wonderful Wudinna’, with its leadership in the agriculture sector complemented by strong community support,”
“The Wudinna community is to be commended for its resilience, its track record of using the ‘good times’ to prepare for the ‘bad’ by putting together strategic plans and for leading from the front to leverage its natural advantages to address challenges.”
Hon. Clare Scriven – Minister for Primary Industries, Regional Development, Forest Industries
