COFFS Harbour has been awarded $5 million by the Federal Government to complete a major facelift of the Jetty Foreshores and to improve the Coffs Coast Sport and Leisure Park's ability to host the World Rally Championships. 

On the Jetty Foreshores a $4.6 million grant will fund an events hub for festivals and markets, a performance stage, a boardwalk pier over the dunes of Jetty Beach, a kiosk, terraced steps onto the beach, new car parks and landscaping. 

A further grant of $485,000 will be used to build an asphalt hard stand at the sport and leisure park and a transport terminal ahead of the return of the World Rally Championships next November. 

"These Federal grants are a massive boost for local jobs, the tourism industry and the sporting community which will go a long way in making showcasing the Jetty Foreshore and International Sports Centre as premier tourist destinations," Cowper MP Luke Hartsuyker said.

"These are two of our city's great assets and this $5 million will bolster their amenity and drive up visitor numbers to the Coffs Coast."
