IF there’s a message the team from Coffs Coast stressed most passionately at The Duck Inn Pub &
Kitchen in Chippendale this week, it is that Coffs Harbour and indeed Coffs Coast is not under lood. “We want people to know that the floods have not cut off the area and even when the creek
does rise and blocks the road to Bellingen, the waters subside within four hours,” emphasised
Brad Daymond, gm of Bonville Golf Resort, winner of best golf resort for the fourth year running. The event was held over cocktails with tourism marketing manager Glen Caldwell, Bellingen Shire Councils economic development manager, Stuart Allardice and a host of other passionate tourism identities. Having identified more than 120 things to do in the region, Glen
Caldwell, said they were delighted that Coffs Coast
Aboriginal Discovery had taken out an award at the recent 2012 Qantas Australian Tourism Awards.
It became clear when Mark Flanders the very ersonable National Parks & Wildlife Service,
Coffs Coast ducks in Discovery ranger, spoke about his role why the award had been won.
“I’ve been in Coffs all my life and we love to share our Aboriginal culture. “When I started in this job it was something that was just breathing; now it’s something that is alive, he said “ Pictured above with Media personality Tracey Spicer is Brad Daymond, Bonville Golf Resort.
