On Saturday the 20th of January Freedom Aged Care Coffs Harbour opened their doors to the community to show off their recent makeover. Our community recently underwent an expansion and major refurbishment to the community centre, residences and gardens.
Hon Luke Hartsuyker MP, the Federal Member for Cowper and Councillor Dr Jan Strom attended the event to officiate the 're-opening' ribbon cutting ceremony, with our own residents Allan Robertson and Nola Page holding the ribbon.
It was a wonderful day for our Freedom residents, family members and visitors with live music, dancing, food and wine tasting, vintage cars, face-painting and a jumping castle for the kids.
Coffs Harbour is a renowned Australian coastal city; boasting quiet uncrowded beaches, tranquil rainforests and a diversity of native wildlife. With the recent makeover of our Coffs Harbour community we at Freedom Aged Care think it is the perfect time to create a list of the best things to do while in Coffs Harbour.
