Farms and agricultural areas are often characterised by large, old,...

Both the Walter Burley Griffin original and Henry F Halloran's subsequent early 20th century designs for "Port Stephens City" included multiple public jetties. Boat ramps in the early 20th century were not, of course, a consideration....

Over the past few months the Councilors and senior staff of the former Great Lakes Council indicated their support for an open space Village Green in North Arm Cove.

North Arm Cove Residents Association was asked to prepare a master plan for this and the hall site. Following consultation with all user groups submitted a plan that locates a Village Green on the now cleared land on the eastern side of The Ridgeway adjacent to the North Arm Cove Hall.
