23 January 2015 Help Coffs Ambassadors Celebrate a Milestone

Council’s Coffs Ambassadors Tour Guides are marking their five year anniversary – so why not help them celebrate by taking a tour?

 

Since the free tours began in 2010, around 2,500 people have enjoyed the unique experience of seeing Coffs Harbour’s headlands, beaches, bushland, gardens and rainforests through the eyes of a passionate local.

 

“The tours have proved to be a real hit with visitors and residents alike,” said Coffs Harbour Mayor, Councillor Denise Knight.  “A great deal of that success is due to the volunteer Coffs Ambassador Tour Guides whose love of their own corner of paradise is the foundation and highlight of every tour.

 

“I can’t think of a better way to thank them and celebrate this milestone than by booking a tour. There’s always something new to learn.”

 

Coffs Ambassador Tour Guides are local residents who are passionate about their environment. Each one devises their own tour, but receives extensive tour guide training from National Parks and Wildlife Service Discovery Rangers.

 

The Coffs Ambassadors Tours for February are:

 

·         Discover your local Community Garden on Sunday, February 1, from 9am - 11am.

·         Coffs Rainforest Walk on Sunday, February 1, from 10am - 12pm.

·         A History of Coffs Creek on Sunday, February 8, from 10am – 12pm.

·         Bush Tucker at Woolgoolga Lake on Saturday, February 14, from 10am – 11:30am.

·         A Sense of Moonee on Sunday, February 22, 9am- 11am.

The tours are free, but bookings are essential and can be made via www.coffsambassadors.com.au or by phoning the Coffs Harbour Visitor Information Centre on 6648 4990.

 

The program began in 2009 thanks to funding from the NSW Environmental Trust and has been funded by Council’s Environmental Levy since 2010.

 

In 2012 Council won two awards for the program at the 2012 NSW Local Government Excellence in the Environment awards.
