Opinion / Support Request from Cabarita Beach /Bogangar Residents' Association

Hi everyone.

I just received the message below from Suzi asking for our opinion on signage topic, plus help to gather pictures and text that would be displayed.

In my opinion I'd like one of the signs to be a map of the walking trails in the area to be on display in the Pandanus precinct. I'd also like some historical information on the village and surrounds.

Can you please respond with what topics you think would be interesting and if you are available to help design the signs?


Dear Anthony

As you know our association has received funding to design, in conjunction with Tweed Shire Council and Cabarita Dune Care, 20 signs on the Caba beach area - particularly Cabarita Hill and the park there.  6 will be large (the same size as the current Rocky Shores one) and 14 will be small A5 size.

We are seeking input (and approval) for our ideas.

I've asked Patrick about this one
One of the large ones  we thought would be valuable would explain Coastal Processes - particularly Dunes and rips.

I am asking for your opinion on this, and, if you or someone from the club would like to collaborate with us on the information gathered for the sign.

What do you Anthony and the Trails group think?

The other large ones  would be 
1. Flora in the area (including pandanus, banksia, Nodding orchid, Calitris Pines)
2. Fauna in the area (inlcuding Glossie Black cocokatoos, Microbats, Reptiles, Bandicoots, Green se Turtles, Brahminy Kite)
3. Whales (placed on the cliff top after the new boardwalk is extended.)
4. The Littoral Rainforest sign would be reproduced and we would get 2 - one for main beach entrance and one for Cabarita Hill.

The small ones would identify specific Bush Tucker plants on the track to Goanna Track.

So Anthony and group - do these topics for signs seem a good idea to you?  
We have said in our application we would liaise with groups in Caba - however we feel very happy steaming ahead with Dune Care.

Is there anyone reliable & competent you can think of who would be good to liaise with to gather pictures and wording?  

Looking forward to hearing your response.
