The Suburb

Gundagai is a town in New South Wales, Australia. Although a small town, Gundagai is a popular topic for writers and has become a representative icon of a typical Australian country town. Located along the Murrumbidgee River and Muniong, Honeysuckle, Kimo, Mooney Mooney, Murrumbidgee and Tumut mountain ranges, Gundagai is 390 kilometres (240 mi) south-west of Sydney. Until 2016, Gundagai was the administrative centre of Gundagai Shire local government area. In the 2016 census the population of Gundagai was 1,925.

The Gundagai area is part of the traditional lands of the Wiradjuri speaking people, while there is a considerable folklore associated with Aboriginal cultural and spiritual beliefs in the area. The floodplains of the Murrumbidgee below the present town of Gundagai were a frequent meeting place of the Wiradjuri.

The first moves to establish ‘Gundagai’ as a township were in 1838 with plans for the new settlement of Gundagae on the Murrumbidgee, about 54 miles beyond Yass … advertised for viewing at the office of the Surveyor-General in Sydney.

What We Did

St. Thomas’ Anglican Church was built by convicts in the 19th century. A coastal walk from the town centre to the 19th-century Tacking Point Lighthouse offers views over waters home to whales and dolphins. Billabong Zoo is known for its koala breeding centre.

Port Macquarie’s central business district contains two shopping centres, many specialty stores, a marina, and the starting point for the 9 km coastal walk, a scenic walking trail that travels from Westport Park, through the Port Macquarie CBD to Tacking Point Lighthouse. The Glasshouse, a centrally located arts, conference and entertainment centre, includes a visitor-information facility.

What We Did

To furnish their waterside deck, the Waters Edge Boutique Hotel selected our Lagoa Wicker Chairs and paired these with Astoria Aluminium Table Bases with Gentas Wenge Duratops.  Additionally they selected Aqua Sun loungers to put by the pool.

Note: Waters Edge has used dark coloured table tops with full sun exposure.  Nextrend does not recommend this. Dark colours used in direct sunlight become hot and will fade over time. The core material can also expand which will then cause the top to bow upwards/downwards at the edges.

South West Rocks is located on the Mid North Coast of New South WalesAustralia, near the mouth of the Macleay River. It is approximately 40 km (25 mi) from KempseyJerseyville is located nearby.

Arakoon was originally established as the township on Trial Bay in 1866. However, by 1889, South West Rocks had established itself as a popular bathing resort with people of the Macleay Valley. South West Rocks got its name most likely from the captains of passing ships, who claimed it was safest to moor vessels near the rocks, south west of Laggers Point (the point on which Trial Bay Gaol is built). Another theory is that their moorings would be safe if they kept the rocks to their south west. Trial Bay was named after a brigThe Trial, which was stolen and wrecked by convicts in 1816 in the bay that now bears its name.[citation needed]

On 13 May 1770, Captain James Cook observed smoke from a fire on a mountain which he named Smoky Cape. The headland in front of the mountain is now the location of Smoky Cape Lighthouse.[citation needed]

In 1972, a Sydney Harbour showboat, Sydney Queen, and the former Newcastle car carriers Lurgurena and Koondooloo, were wrecked on the Main Beach after breaking free from their moorings in heavy storms.[3] Elements of all three vessels were salvaged, but the hull of Sydney Queen filled with sand and could not be removed. It was eventually burned to the waterline to remove the obstruction from the beach.[3]

What We Did

In 2016, to furnish the large deck area at the Riverside Tavern, Nextrend were engaged.  Utilising Florida Chairs to compliment the relaxed resort feeling provided by the water views and greenery, these were matched with Black Astoria Table Bases with Marble Duratops to complete the look.  Four years on and the products still look brand new.
