The way it was...



The Fitzroy Hotel is now The Coast Hotel, the road is now a sealed highway, and the bullocks have given way to B-doubles. When this picture was taken (circa 1915), Coffs Harbour was just an industrial outpost of Dorrigo and was a much smaller settlement than Bellingen. This weekend our city's humble beginning will be recalled and remembered as part of celebrations to mark the centenary of the Dorrigo Shire Council and the 50th anniversary of the Coffs Harbour Shire Council.
