The marketing team from Destination Barrington Coast have been delighted in the field guide submissions being sent in for the new barringtoncoast.com.au website.
24 field guides have been submitted by 19 authors. Some are local resident, others business owners. Regular visitors have also contributed their knowledge on everything from four-wheel driving to scuba diving and where to eat out.
Some local business owners who have written guides include Helen Black, owner Coastal Brewing Company (Forster’s first brewery), Jessica Harris from Lazy Paddles in tea Gardens (Paddling the Myall River) and Dan Buckley, owner of the Ridge Eco Cabin in Gloucester (A local’s guide to spending a day out in Gloucester).
Field guides written by locals and regular visitors give the new website authenticity to users as they know it’s coming from a local or expert who have lived in or visited the region before.
Anyone can submit a Field Guide on the site by clicking here. There’s also a template to get you started.
