Merry Christmas to all

The festive season is in full swing with Christmas only a few days away and 2017 drawing to a close. In today’s busy world, I hope you have found time to finish the Christmas shopping, presents are being wrapped, and the fridge and pantry are stocked ready for family and friends to arrive to share holiday festivities on the Macleay.

My fellow Councillors and I wish you all a safe and happy festive season. Let the peace, harmony and goodwill of Christmas be shared by all in our beautiful valley - not only at Christmas but throughout the year ahead.

Welcome to our visitors

The Macleay Valley’s great climate and spectacular coast and hinterland areas attract around half a million visitors each year. The tourism industry injects significant dollars into our economy and is one of our biggest employers, so it is something we need to look after. Please extend tourists to the area a friendly welcome and offer the mateship and community spirit that the Macleay is famous for. It’s important that we make sure visitors to our Shire over the holidays enjoy their stay and are keen to encourage others to visit the area, and to return themselves.

Holiday fun on the Macleay

If you’re looking for something to do to entertain the kids and visitors over the holidays, visit Council’s website  for a wide range of vacation activities, top beach and fishing spots, eating out tips, scenic bush drives and camping areas, great community markets and shopping, along with special events that will be held across the Macleay over the summer period.

Visitor Information Centres have been stocked with a new 2017-2018 visitor guide - Drop in to the Macleay Valley Coast - to entice travellers to discover the wonders we enjoy all year round. It is not only a handy booklet to show visitors some stunning locations and fun things to do, or where to eat and stay, but offers a great insight into our unique history and culture that makes the Macleay Valley the best place to live.
