Family fun with boating advice and safety demonstrations will be the order of the day this Sunday at the Coffs Harbour Jetty Foreshores and six locations around NSW.
The Member for Coffs Harbour, Andrew Fraser, said the Roads and Maritime Services in partnership with the Department of Primary Industries, was inviting the whole family to attend Boating Safety Day.
