Many thanks to those 25 souls who came along to the 2019 North Arm Cove Clean Up Australia event on the weekend of the 2nd  and 3rd of March.  We all are also grateful to those that pick up through the year, even though they can’t make it on the day. It was a fine day and a fine turn out.

Oyster leases can be seen around the Cove and adjacent areas of Port Stephens. Although not all of these leases are as active as they once were, the industry is celebrated annually at the Karuah Oyster and Timber Festival. How did this local industry start?
