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.
