North Arm Cove is a quiet little coastal village now but had some dreams been realised it could well have turned into a bustling port city.
"The most central spot, where the new city is to be in the Great Port of the New Northern State."
Cove residents who participated in the Koori walking tour on the 13 March found some surprising history unique to this area. ( Koori is the name of the people, Aboriginal is the name given by the English and means native).
