The Three Brothers Guide Working Group has been established under the Three Brothers Network (3BN) committee of the Johns River Community Progress Association Inc. (JRCPA). They are working to fulfill the requirements of a recent grant from the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF) in partnership with Hastings Landcare, to produce a guide to the Three Brothers region.
The purpose of the working group is to establish the process for gathering information from all stakeholders via a series of workshops and activity days, culminating in the publishing of the first Three Brothers Guide.
The guide will focus on the natural wonders of our region, highlighting our four National Parks, state forests and the Cattai Wetlands. It will be published online and in print, with printed copies distributed locally and through regional distribution networks.
The guide will contain sections on tourism facilities, plus topics including the Three Brothers landscape and geology, the legends and stories involving the Three Brothers Region and local flora and fauna.
Known as a “place of plenty” and a meeting place for three clans within the Biripi nation, the Three Brothers Guide will highlight the biodiversity and cultural heritage of this beautiful coastal landscape.
The working group includes the following members:
Daintry Gerrand (Hastings Landcare; JRCPA History Chair), Nardja Davies (Sea Acres, Yun-Yi-Barragay; JRCPA Cultural Chair), David Shepard (JRCPA President; Aboriginal Heritage Group Chair) and Lorri Fischer (Three Brothers Network Chair).
Anyone with information about the Three Brothers Region is encouraged to share it with the group. Material can be sent by email to email@example.com or by mail to Three Brothers Network, P.O. Box 4044, Moorland, NSW 2443.
