• North Coast Environment Council

    Formed in 1976, we are the peak umbrella environment group in northern NSW. We cover the area from the Hunter to the Tweed and west to the New England Highway. We also actively support other campaigns further afield. We receive no government funding and have no paid staff or central office. Our members and office-bearers work around the region, often travelling large distances to assist others as we organise in our defence of the environment and the communities it sustains. We rely on donations and the efforts of our members and volunteers, to remain effective. If you would like to make a tax deductible donation to assist us with our work, we guarantee plenty of bang for your buck. Post us a message to this site and we will get back to you.

NCEC meeting April 19 details

Meeting will start at 11am – here’s how to get there.

From Armidale, follow the road to Grafton and turn left into Geregarow Road at Coutts Crossing, 19km from Grafton. Follow Geregarow ‘freeway’ for about 5km to Shannondale Road on the left. Follow Shannondale Rd for just under 4km and you will see a bank of wheelie bins on your right. There is an unmarked road to the right at that point. Follow that, through a disused cattle grid onto dirt road for about 200 metres to our gate on left, No 384.

From South Grafton, leave the Pacific Highway onto the Gwydir Highway (Glen Innes Road). Drive under the railway viaduct, through the 1st roundabout and on the the 2nd roundabout (less than one kilometre from the Pacific Highway). This roundabout has two monuments on it so easily recognised, turn left onto Skinner Street, which shortly becomes Rushforth Road. Follow that road for about 16km taking care as there are a lot of potholes, blind corners, and a single lane bridge. At the 16km point turn right onto Shannondale Road. Follow Shannondale Rd for just under 4km and you will see a bank of wheelie bins on your right. There is an unmarked road to the right at that point. Follow that, through a disused cattle grid onto dirt road for about 200 metres to our gate on left, No 384.

All are welcome to stay the night and a barbecue is planned. Bring any special dietry needs with you, we are carnivores! We have sleeping room for two couples, and a loungeroom floor in an emergency, but there is plenty of room for camping. Best bring own bedding in case a lot plan to stay. See you there.

Regards John and Patricia.
