CLIMATE change was the topic of discussion as kayaker Steve Posselt paddled into Coffs Harbour on his Climate Emergency Campaign last weekend.

Coffs Harbour welcomed the kayaker with half a dozen children and adults paddling out on their kayaks to meet him in the harbour before coming ashore and talking about his journey and mission at the Jetty beach.
