PUBS are a key part of Aus­tralia’s cul­tural iden­tity and act as a meet­ing place within our lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties.

Coffs Har­bour is no ex­cep­tion and has a deep con­nec­tion with his­tor­i­cal pubs and ho­tels but most of this in­for­ma­tion was hard to find … un­til now.

A project from the Aus­tralian Na­tional Univer­sity Archives has brought his­tory of our lo­cal pubs to life.

Read about the his­tory of our pubs on­line.
