Celebrating Our New Foreshores

6 years ago | by


The wait is almost over and the community are invited to celebrate the completion of the new Jetty4Shores at a community festival to be held Saturday 4 November 2017.

Coffs Harbour Mayor, Councillor Denise Knight, is hosting the event which will feature live music, free face painting and entertainment for the kids along with food stalls, and other attractions.

Luna Grand who achieved fame when they won Australia’s Got Talent as Uncle Jed in 2013, will headline the entertainment on the day.

“It’s going to be an exciting day celebrating the completion of the Jetty4Shores Stages 2-4 project. As a community we have worked hard to see this vision come to fruition and this event will give us the opportunity to enjoy this great new space together,” said Coffs Harbour Mayor Councillor Denise Knight.

“We are extremely grateful to the Australian Government for their contribution and also to the stakeholders and contractors for their hard work in helping to complete this stage of the Jetty4Shores for our community to enjoy.

“In only six short months this space has been truly transformed into a key destination within our City and I can’t think of a better place to enjoy the coming summer months.”

The Jetty4Shores area will now be fully accessible with wide paths that cater specifically for wheelchairs, accessible parking, and a ramp that leads to the plaza and right onto the beach. The extended toilet block now includes an accessible facility based on Changing Places principals, that features a hoist, shower and amenities.

Other key elements of the Jetty4Shores are a main stage, secondary stage, shelters, open plaza and boardwalk, providing social, cultural and fun places for people to meet, relax and socialise.

Underground power and other electrical infrastructure has been installed to equip the space for major events and festivals.

Local artists have contributed extensively to the design elements of the new space telling stories of Aboriginal history, the coastal environment and maritime history though interpretive signage, walkways, sculptures and artwork.
