Campaign drives Sydneysiders north

COFFS Harbour, Urunga and other popular tourist destinations in the area will be showcased on Sydney airwaves this week as part of the launch of the Legendary Pacific Coast.

According to project co-ordinator, Leanne Cherry, Tourism NSW and others want to remind Sydney people how amazing the drive north to Brisbane is.

“There are legendary beaches, legendary towns and legendary people and the Breakfast Crew from Radio Triple MMM will be on the road and broadcasting telling everyone about it,” she said.

The crew will be on air from the Big Banana from 6am to 9am this Thursday and locals are invited to come and let them know what’s legendary about living here.

From 10am the focus will shift to Urunga and the latest developments in the Morgo Street Reserve.

Brad Shields, from the Urunga Heads Holiday Park, said holiday parks along the North Coast were becoming popular family destinations.

“Between the Hastings and the Tweed we manage 150 hectares of public land with only 60 hectares used for accommodation.

“Urunga is a showpiece for us – we have built new playground facilities, pathways and a public barbecue area with new public amenities planned.

“Now our focus is shifting to access for visitors with disabilities and also improving the environment.”
