"I am looking forward to visiting the beautiful Richmond Valley region prior to and during Beef Week," he said.

"I am keen to meet as many community groups, organisations and projects as I can and learn about your successes and achievements in such areas as agriculture, industry, education, employment and community care."

The visit is one of nine to regional NSW planned for 2016, reflecting the Governor's commitment to engage with communities right across the State and promote youth leadership; regional and rural growth; innovation, industry, trade and investment; inclusiveness and diversity; and service to state and community.
