No need to clear the Jetty Fore­shores

The Coffs Coast Advocate - - NEWS OPINION -

WHEN I go on an out­ing with my fam­ily to en­joy the splen­did public lands along our Jetty Fore­shore we never strug­gle for views be­cause they are avail­able in mag­nif­i­cent abun­dance at the Jetty, with unim­peded 360-de­gree coastal and hin­ter­land vis­tas.

With a bit of a walk it gets even bet­ter along North Wall and Mut­ton­bird Is­land.

If we don’t want to get out of the car then we go to the south­ern flanks of the har­bour, Gal­lows Beach, North Wall or South Wall.

When we want to cel­e­brate birth­days and other such oc­ca­sions we make use of the public pic­nic ar­eas along the fore­shore, with great fa­cil­i­ties for fam­i­lies and barely a risk to be ex­pe­ri­enced.

When the nor-easter is blow­ing, as it does most af­ter­noons, I am al­ways most thank­ful for the re­stored and re­gen­er­ated na­tive veg­e­ta­tion that en­sures our com­fort.

Without the veg­e­ta­tion these great com­mu­nity as­sets would be ex­tremely un­pleas­ant and barely us­able when the wind is blow­ing.
