Bicentenary of Port Macquarie

F

or more than 40,000 years the Birpai people have been the original inhabitants and occupants of the Greater Port Macquarie region. Relying on the land and waterways to sustain themselves, the Birpai people made temporary huts along the river and around the lakes allowing them to follow the seasonal food trail. The region’s richly diverse landscapes together with the subtropical climate ensured that the community thrived in harmony with the environment for many thousands of years prior to the arrival of Europeans. Today, with its own unique heritage, Port Macquarie is one of the most popular tourist destinations on the NSW coast, and also one of the fastest growing regions in NSW. Discovered by John Oxley in 1818 and named after the Governor of NSW, Lachlan Macquarie, our first visitors were convicts sent to the Port Macquarie penal settlement in 1821 to serve time for secondary offences. The town was built by those convicts and overseen by military officers of the 48th Regiment. Port Macquarie was opened up to free settlers from 1830 and remained a convict town until 1847. Evidence of our convict past can be viewed at various locations including the convict built St Thomas’ Church, the well of the Female Factory in Munster Street ( Map ref K8), the well of the 1840 gaol located within the Ibis Styles Hotel and at the Port Macquarie Museum. The historic cemetery at the southern end of Horton Street ( Map ref J9) is home to the remains of many of our early settlers including convicts, military officers and free settlers. The Port Macquarie-Hastings region is currently reaching a number of milestones in their European discovery and settlement. 2018 marked two hundred years since Surveyor General John Oxley’s journey of discovery during which he and his party travelled to the place he named Port Macquarie. This year (2021) marks the Bicentenary of the first settlement in Port Macquarie. The Bicentenary is an opportunity for our community and visitors to come together and reflect on our past; our present and our future. A range of activities are planned from 10-18 April 2021 - See pages 6 & 7 for more information. 4

“Hello Koalas Sculpture Trail is a World First”, says UK public art expert, Elaine Burke. “There is simply no other sculpture trail in the world quite like it and the only one dedicated to koalas!” Margret Meagher, Founder, Hello Koalas Sculpture Trail tells her story. I thought of the idea for a sculpture trail in Port Macquarie in 2011, after moving from Sydney, following a lifetime working in tourism and the arts. The Sydney Opera House and Art Gallery of NSW were my second homes in those days. In 2019, we took travelling exhibitions to the Australian National Botanic Gardens in Canberra in March and to Royal Botanic Garden Sydney in October/November. In April 2021, we are exhibiting 22 Hello Koalas sculptures at the Australian Botanic Garden at Mount Annan, near Campbelltown. We have consistently won business and tourism awards since 2015 including the 2019 Regional Business Award for Excellence in Innovation and Gold for Cultural Tourism in the 2019 NSW State Tourism Awards which led us to the Australian Tourism Finals, achieving 4th place out of a field of 8 national tourism attractions. We estimate that over 1 million people a year engage with our Hello Koalas sculptures in Port Macquarie – hugging them, smiling at them, taking selfies and family photos with them and talking about them on facebook, Instagram and TripAdvisor (#hellokoalas, @hellokoalas). TripAdvisor ranks Hello Koalas Sculpture Trail #3 of 44 Things to Do and #1 Sights and Landmarks in Port Macquarie. This social media coverage reinforces the fact that Hello Koalas sculptures are wondrous little characters, designed by talented Australian artists. And the sculptures love receiving the attention! Many people see our Hello Koalas as loveable personalities and it is not unusual to find small children feeding them fallen gum leaves for lunch. When we started planning the Trail, we aimed to create 50

one metre high fibreglass sculptures but Hello Koalas is an infectious project and we now have 78 sculptures to share with our community and visitors to our region. And more are on their way in local artists’ studios. Sometimes our Hello Koalas sculptures go on tour so not all the sculptures are available to see when people visit but there are always 50+ Hello Koalas sculptures on display. We keep people aware of their movements on our website – www.hellokoalas.com and we have a 24/7 Hotline so people can email (info@hellokoalas.com), text or phone us with their queries (0416 641 482). Each year we hold the Hello Koalas Festival and our 5th Festival will be held over Saturday and Sunday, 25 and 26 September 2021. The Festival highlight is the Hello Koalas Treasure Hunt, presented in association with our charity partner, Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service. Discover 30 specially selected Hello Koalas and post your favourites on social media. Everyone who completes the Treasure Hunt is awarded a Certificate of Achievement and there are special prizes to be won, like helicopter flights over Port Macquarie. Simply register online to participate (www.hellokoalas.com/festival). One of our principal aims of the Hello Koalas Sculpture Trail is to promote koala preservation. We want to protect koalas from road accidents, inquisitive dogs in backyards, loss of habitat through urbanisation and drought, and diseases like chlamydia. Join our creative journey of fun and adventure while learning about koala conservation. A good place to start is the Hello Koalas Gift Shop where you can see unique and stylish souvenirs and gifts plus 8+ Hello Koalas sculptures on the Trail. And remember the Port Macquarie-Hastings Bicentenary Hello Koalas Treasure Hunt, is on from 10 to 18 April 2021.

Local Beaches. For surfing, the best spots are Town, Flynns, Lighthouse, Rainbow and North Haven beaches. The Breakwall at Town Beach works best with swell from the south through to the north-east. The Middle has some powerful lefts and is for the experienced surfer only, while Flagstaff is the protected southern headland of Town Beach. At Flynns Beach, waves can be found with swells from the south to east with offshore north-west winds through to south-east winds. Lighthouse Beach has a protected northern corner that handles north to north-east swell. Further south, Cathie is an open beach, which can offer powerful waves with south to east swell. Rainbow Beach is a protected southern headland with a right point break and beach breaks. Grants Headland picks up the smallest of swells and is best in the north-east swell with west to northeast winds. North Haven (Grants Beach) offers beach breaks with the best waves south to east swell, and works best with west to south-east winds. The bar can hand out some large waves but tidal flow from the river affects the wave quality. (With thanks to Port Macquarie Surf School for surfing information). PORT MACQUARIE SURF SCHOOL Learning to surf is fun and easy, especially at the multi award winning Port Macquarie Surf School where they have lessons daily. All coaches are fully accredited, licensed and insured with Surfing Australia. You will learn surf safety and awareness as well as how to catch a wave. They cater for all ages and abilities from beginners through to advanced. Port Macquarie Surf School is Council approved and a licensed Surfing Australia Surf School. All equipment is provided, including safe softboards, wetsuits and rashvests. They also have hire boards if you know what you're doing and just want to get out there. Jump onto their website portmacquariesurfschool.com.au and book a lesson or board hire today. If you have some questions drop into their booking office at 46 Pacific Drive right opposite Flynns Beach or call them on 6584 7733. If you are looking for calmer waters and a great place to take the little ones, there are couple of options to choose from - all of which require parent supervision. With its rocky outcrop, Shelly Beach creates a somewhat protected lagoon and is ideal for the littlies. Other good areas for kids include Settlement Point, Lake Cathie lagoon (when open to the ocean) and Pilot Beach in Dunbogan. Town Beach is also good with a long break and plenty of rock pools towards the point for the kids to explore. Beach fishing is very popular with locals and tourists alike. Rocky Beach, Lighthouse Beach, Rainbow Beach and Grants Beach are all popular spots. If you want somewhere to get your 4WD dirty, try North Beach, Lighthouse Beach, Rainbow Beach, Grants Beach or Dunbogan Beach – all of which have a 4WD entrance. A licence is required for recreational fishing (service.nsw.gov.au) and you also require a permit to drive on the approved 4WD beaches. Beach driving permits are available from the Visitor Information Centre located at the Glasshouse, Cnr of Clarence & Hay Streets. Map ref K8. 20

Recently this has become THE speciality food strip where you can find anything from those hard to source Asian ingredients to some of the tastiest bread and desserts that you’ve ever tried. Your curiosity may be drawn to a delicious aroma and a line of people outside one of the shops… these are the locals excitedly waiting to buy the day’s fresh treats from Burkhardt’s Organic Bakery. From first glance, this place has a lot more going on than most people would expect. Behind the doors of this German-inspired Bakery, which has been a local business on the scene for the past 12 years, Michael Burkhardt and his family have spent the last six years creating an authentic Food Experience focused on “real” food, sustainable methods and utilising as many purely Organic ingredients as possible. The term “Organic”, for this German Pastry Chef/Baker, is definitely more than just a current day marketing term - it’s a way of growing, sourcing and baking on a day-to-day basis. As the local clientele know, just walking by Burkhardt’s Bakery is a feast for the eyes as well as the tastebuds. No one really needs an excuse to indulge in the really special European-style treats especially created by Michael and his crew, but Easter is definitely the time to sample these delicacies! There’s nothing quite like Burkhardt’s Hot Cross Buns made from their traditional recipe and freshly baked from the oven. And their delicious Salmon Quiche (only available at Easter) is a fabulous addition to any lunch or dinner with friends and family, either at home or celebrating outdoors. While stocking up on their Hot Cross Buns, you won't be able to resist adding some extra treats from their absolutely delectable pastries, cakes and artisan breads. But the great assurance too is knowing the care and attention that go into the production and presentation of all the mouth-watering treats on offer. The dedication doesn’t stop there - Michael is also fully committed to sustainable practices and chooses to use an Organically grown flour. He also uses “Salt Of The Earth” hand harvested sea salt and fully filtered, fluoridefree water in all of his products. So the next time you’re wandering down Short Street and notice the boutique food stores that may inspire your cooking, be sure to pop into Burkhardt’s Organic Bakery and taste the difference of what experience and a passion for healthy and sustainable food is like.

Koalas Port Macquarie is the place to celebrate one of Australia’s most iconic animals the koala. Here you can not only get up close and personal with our furry friends at Billabong Zoo (see page 11), you can also visit the world’s first koala hospital, or take the Hello Koalas Sculpture Trail to see over 60+ beautiful koala sculptures.

KOA L A S M A K E G R E AT M U M S The gestation period is approximately 35 days and at birth, the unfurred, blind ‘pinkie’ crawls unaided from the birth canal, up through the fur and into the vertical pouch and attaches to one of the two teats. Once their eyes are opened, the joeys detach from the teat but remain in the pouch for around four to five months, growing and becoming fully furred. Anywhere from 250 grams weight onwards, the joey will become active, occasionally popping its head out and sniffing the air. Around this time the joey begins to stimulate its mother’s cloaca to produce a greenish substance called ‘pap’. This is passed down from the caecum, a specialised section of the intestinal tract where fermentation of the leaf occurs, for the joeys to eat. The ‘pap’ contains vital micro organisms (bacteria) that inoculate the joey’s gut system to enable them to digest eucalypt leaf. Without pap, a joey cannot eat eucalypt leaf and will not survive. From around six months of age, the joey will start emerging onto the mother's belly and by eight months the joey becomes a ‘back young’, staying on or near the mother. By 12 months, the koala is usually weaned. Female koalas are excellent mothers, and are highly protective of their young.

T H E K OA L A H O S P I TA L The Koala Hospital adjacent to Roto House is the world’s only hospital dedicated solely to the care and preservation of wild koalas. Founded by Jean and Max Starr in 1973, the hospital is entirely self-funded from donations, bequests, adoptions and their shop. It is managed by the charitable organisation, the Koala Conservation Australia, only has five paid staff, 170 volunteers and hosts one overseas volunteer for one month every month - a position that is in very high demand. Facilities include a treatment clinic, eight internal intensive care units, six outdoor intensive care units and 30 rehabilitation yards. There are a small number of non releasable koala patients who are permanent residents (nine in total) that are available for the public to see. The Koala Hospital is a research institution that collaborates and works with a number of universities and other institutions. Up until about five years ago, this unique Hospital would treat up to 200-250 sick and/or injured koalas each year, and successfully rehabilitate and return about 60-70% of their admissions to the wild. Koalas are admitted from all over NSW. Primary reasons for admission to care are being hit by cars, dog attacks and the bacterial infection Chlamydia which causes urogenital disease (commonly called wet bottom) and ocular (conjunctivitis). Other reasons include bushfires and issues that occur due to loss of habitat. In particular, last summer's devastating bushfires across

the region had a huge impact on the local koala population and the hospital was inundated with injured koalas. How can we help the koala population? We need to ensure their genetic diversity is conserved by protecting their habitat, reducing vehicle strikes, dog attacks and disease - this is fundamental to their population health. How are the admitted Koalas named? Usually by the person who found them and the location in which they were found. Of the 900 species of eucalypt trees that grow in Australia, approximately only 60 of them across Australia are ‘food trees’ so koalas’ habitat is determined by the availability of these trees. Australian Music legend John Williamson is also passionate about saving koalas. John has been a patron of the Koala Conservation Australia ever since he met one of their founders, the late Jean Starr, in the early eighties. During a visit to the Koala Hospital, he witnessed an emergency rescue call come in. The entire experience was so impressive for John that it inspired him to write the song “Good Bye Blinky Bill”, which became enormously popular throughout Australia. He very generously donated the proceeds from his song to Koala Conservation Australia. John raised a considerable amount of money that enabled the Koala Hospital to build a new “John Williamson Wing” which houses their intensive care unit. The Koala Hospital has plans for a multi-

Activities are only limited by your imagination, with a great choice of professional river and ocean cruise specialists where you can take in the scenery, watch the dolphins play or be taken to where the fish are guaranteed to be biting. Avid anglers will be in paradise as they hunt their favourite species from one of the many fishing spots along the rivers, lakes, beaches, and breakwalls. Local fishing and boating centres scattered around the area are always happy to give a few tips about what’s biting, as well as being able to cater to all your bait and tackle needs. Beach fishing is very popular with locals and tourists alike. Rocky Beach, Lighthouse Beach, Rainbow Beach and Grants Beach are all popular spots. If you want somewhere to get your 4WD dirty, try North Beach, Lighthouse Beach, Rainbow Beach, Grants Beach or Dunbogan Beach – all of which have a 4WD entrance. A licence is required for recreational fishing (service. nsw.gov.au) and you also require a permit to drive on the approved 4WD beaches. Beach driving permits are available from the Visitor Information Centre located at the Glasshouse, Cnr of Clarence & Hay Streets. Map ref K8. For more information about beaches, please see page 20. Each year between May and November, the Port Macquarie coastal region is a haven for whale watching. After a full summer of feeding in Antarctica, approximately 16,000 humpback whales migrate north to subtropical waters where they mate and give birth before making their return trip south. A great way to experience these magnificent creatures is on a whale watching cruise. Departing frequently during the season, these cruises will almost guarantee you an upfront and personal experience in a safe and comfortable environment.

PORT JET CRUISES For an unforgettable experience on the water, Port Jet Cruises has it all.

New to their fleet is the comfortable and spacious two level catamaran ‘Essence’, complete with inside seating, underwater Racecourse Head viewing windows, covered top deck and boom net. There is a style of Delicate Nobby ride to suit everyone, whether it be an exhilarating Ocean Blast, a River Cruise (afternoon, sunset or eco), or maybe a Dolphin Spotting Cruise is Point more your style.
