Cowboy Jackson Dening has done Tamworth, in NSW's north east, proud, taking out the big win in the Amazing Race Australia.
'The Cowboys' - Jackson and teammate Brendon Crawley - snagged first place in the competition after 57 days of gruelling challenges.
With their win comes $250,000, and both boys are looking forward to setting their families up.
"That's our main goal," Jackson said.
"We might try and talk about organising a bit of an auction to give back to the farmers. We'll talk about it in the few weeks coming up and see what we can work out."

They've kept their win a secret since the end of 2020 when the show was filmed, but after the grand finale on Sunday night, all has been revealed.
The boys took out the win after beating the 'Gold Coast Girls' and the 'Super Sikhs' on a trek to the top of Mount Kosciuszko.
Despite the many exhausting legs of the race the pair went through, both agreed being away from their family was the hardest part of it all.
Brendon, who grew up in Maitland in NSW's Hunter Valley and now lives in Yass in NSW's Southern Tablelands, left his four-day-old son behind when they embarked on the adventure.
"It was super hard ... to leave mum at home, it was her first bub and I couldn't be more proud of her," he told the Leader.
Their lives are a bit different now following the win, with many interviews and TV appearances scheduled.
"I don't like trying to draw attention to myself at all, but we deserved it so we'll take it in our stride and keep on keeping on," Brendon said.
Jackson said he was "proud as punch" they got the job done and had the chance to represent country-folk as well.
"I think we had a lot riding on our shoulders, we were the only ones there representing the country," he said.
"Pressure is a privilege and I think the country toughness helped us on the race."
Both gave advice to locals who might want to take on the Amazing Race in the future.
"You'll surprise yourself when you get there, the country toughness is only bred in a few," Jackson said.
Brendon said to "step out of your comfort zone, do your best, be yourself".
