Quote about Our Future (Macleay)

"The completion of the Kempsey Bypass and how we, as a community adapt to this change, will be pivotal for the future of Natures Wonderland.  It is critical that Council supports the entire Macleay Valley community during this period of change, realising the many opportunities that are offered by our unique location and diverse environment."
