Signs of the times for Angourie Heritage Walk
VOLUNTEERS from Angourie Community Coastcare have drafted some information signs which tell a bit of the story behind the old railway line to the quarry (Angourie Pools), early surfers accommodation at Wavers Inn and the history of Angourie Point.
The Heritage Walk project has been funded through the National Landcare Programme. It includes the construction of boardwalks, the control of weeds and erosion in the reserve and the development of these information signs.
There are three small signs. One at the entrance to the old railway cutting at Green Point, one at the shop end of Spooky Gully Nature Walk and another sign where Wavers Inn once stood. A larger sign is proposed for a spot near the National Surfing Reserve plaque at the headland lookout which features surfing history and past indigenous use of the point.
We would like to hear from the community before the signs are sent off for production and installed. The draft signs will be on display at the Silk and Sand shop at Angourie from July 23 to 31.
