Health services for small towns and scholarships for rural students are just two of the achievements of the Macquarie Group of the Country Women's Association (CWA) in its 90 years - and its members aren't done yet.
Group president Karen McHale said they were proud to reach the milestone and focused on meeting current challenges faced by society.
Forebears had led the way, showing the changes the grassroots organisation could realise.
"They built the hospital in Gulargambone and ran that hospital and paid for everything in that hospital," she said.
The organisation remained as relevant as ever, the group president and 20-year member said.
Mrs McHale highlighted the CWA's move to advocate for victims of domestic violence and for more support services in their local communities.
"This year we're concentrating a lot of our efforts on domestic violence, we've taken that challenge up, and we're working with the people from [services addressing] domestic violence which to me is something we have really needed up here for a long time," Mrs McHale said.
