IN THE bush, where the weather can be as dry as the humour, some towns are battling a downturn in the rural economy.
But the quintessentially Australian spirit of refusing to be cowed is alive and well.
In a bid to stand out from the rest, NSW towns are turning fortunes around with ingenuity, resourcefulness and just a hint of quirkiness.

There is ongoing concern about mental health and suicide in rural and remote NSW.
Life can be tough and problems can seem overwhelming at times. It can be very difficult to know what to do and how to cope but there is help available.
To mark World Suicide Prevention Day and R U OK? Day on the 10th of September, this month's online forum will focus on mental health and suicide.
Our expert panel are ready to answer your questions about a number of important issues, including:
preventing suicide and providing support in tough times
how to tell if someone is thinking about suicide and what to do about it
how to have a difficult conversation
how to reduce stigma associated with mental illness, and
understanding what it is like to be bereaved by suicide.

An estimated 300 people visited the Namoi Echo Museum in Wee Waa on Saturday to enjoy Rotary’s inaugural Cotton Country Car and Bike Show.
Glorious sunny conditions and an impressive display of 70 vehicles meant a steady stream of spectators flowed in throughout the show.
Wee Waa Rotary President Steve Windress said the committee was overwhelmed by the community’s response, with 40 motobikes and 35 cars entered for the very first show.
“Seventy entrants is quite good, we had support from a really wide area including Narrabri, Moree, Walgett and other surrounding towns,” Steve said.
