Celebrate Hands on Bowraville Day

HAVE you been to Bowraville lately?

Tomorrow is Hands On Bowraville Day and a great opportunity to visit the town and get acquainted with the community's tourism offerings.

“It's a day to look behind the doors and discover some of the town's hidden treasures,” Project Co-ordinator Kerry Grace said.

“We want local people to visit the attractions and re-acquaint themselves with the town. Then they can spread the word to their visiting friends and families.”

Ms Grace said Bowraville had a strong sense of culture and was emerging as a centre for cultural tourism.

“There is the culture of the Gumbaynggirr people and then all the non-indigenous culture of museums, art galleries and the theatre. There are also some wonderful creative products being made, including art by a group of Gumbaynggirr women.

“The aim of the day is to help locals to work together to promote a consistent product to the outside world.”

So take a trip to Bowra tomorrow to try some handmade chocolates, pick up some Christmas treats at the art gallery or Nambucca Valley Phoenix or enjoy a hands-on experience with the museum collections (entry is free for the day).

Ms Grace said January activities were also planned such as Kids Days at the Bowraville Theatre.
