YAMBA prawns will be just one of the many Clarence Valley delicacies showcased at the upcoming Gate to Plate.

Garry Anderson, who is in charge of business development for the Clarence River Fisherman's Cooperative Ltd, was only too pleased to show off his large cooked king prawns, plucked from the ocean waters by members' trawlers.

Mr Anderson said while the shellfish always proved popular, his 130 members fished thousands and thousands of tonnes of Clarence school prawns as well as Clarence River mullet, bream and octopus from the ocean.

The September foodie festival is to highlight the finest of local delicacies.

On Saturday, September 15 there will be food trails spanning the Clarence Valley from the Heads at Yamba to upriver of Copmanhurst as well as a master class by Antony Perring at No. 1 Duke St.

On Sunday, September 16 there will be the Village Markets followed by a sold-out Long Lunch - six courses showcasing the best of the Valley's produce.

Free camping crackdown will pay for itself with fines

One of the best free camp sites in Australia this morning, Sunday, 1 May 2011.  The only problem with it is that it is on the northern end of Sunshine Beach in Noosa National Park, at least 500 metres from the nearest public loo. Plenty of laws against this, but no enforcement at all.
