The Destination NSW Board last week held its February meeting in Coffs Harbour, engaging with operators and experiencing local attractions during the visit.

The Board holds meetings in regional NSW each year to facilitate engagement with stakeholders in the state's many visitor economy regions. 

The meeting in Coffs Harbour was a great opportunity for the Board to learn more about the NSW North Coast, which is a powerhouse for the NSW visitor economy, delivering $15 million of domestic visitor spend into the region every day.

While in Coffs Harbour, Chairman Sally Loane, CEO Steve Cox and the Board members hosted visitor economy stakeholders at a networking event at Coffs Harbour Surf Club and spent time at attractions including Big Banana Fun Park, Coffs Coast Wildlife Sanctuary, Yarilla Place, Bonville Golf Course and Sealy Lookout to learn more about the key issues and opportunities for the region.

Board member Clark Webb also welcomed fellow Board members to the Giingana Gumbaynggirr Freedom School, NSW’s first bilingual school of an Aboriginal language, of which Clark is the founder.
