An invitation to write for Outlook

Welcome to Coffs Coast Outlook a site developed to serve the people of our community and region.

It is here for you to write (and show) the things you are proud of and to tell the world at large of what is good in this area we call home.  We live in a special place; it stretches from the north, through the hinterland and coastal hamlets to the south.  From the Red Rock district with its unique history and culture and down the coastal strip to Woolgoolga famed for its Curry Festival.  We make our homes by crystal clear waters and sandy beaches through to the center of Coffs Harbour.  And we do not stop there; for some prefer the idyllic country side over the mountain ridges and to the west.  They live and work in the unspoiled beauty of the Orara valley or in the high rugged ranges on the way to Bellingen and Dorrigo.  Others hug the coast line to call Sawtell home and so also we cluster at Urunga and in Nambucca. Yes this is a special place.

Yet, if you travel along the main road modern trends dictate you have to move at pace.  You skirt the hidden havens of beauty; you miss the secret places that are ours.  There are no real signs such as a billboard with a youngster on a surf board pointing to their favourite spot. There are no magnets to draw people off the main road.

Now, once people leave Macksville, the water is out of sight, the delight of the hinterland hidden from view. Traffic speeds by unaware of what they miss.

So it is up to you to spread the word; to tell people of what we have to offer; the social activities and places of special attraction.  Tourists are the life blood of a community such as ours.  We have very little by way of industry or manufacture; in the large we are a pristine community free of pollution.  We have clean air and welcoming sunny days.

So, we at Coffs Coast Outlook, invite you the community to contribute a regular article (say monthly) as to what you or your group have to offer visitors.  Sport, culture, academic, special interests group are welcome to use the site to promote their local interest.  We want you to share your secrets with the tourist world for the benefit not just of your group but for our community.
