COMMUNITY - There's a new ferry service from Elizabeth Bay

As of December 2018 Captain Cook Cruises have stepped up their game bro include ferries in the new cohort of ride sharing and on demand transport services.

Forget timetables, transport cards and traffic. The AHOY App from Captain Cook Cruises brings the ferry to you when you need it. Similar to ride sharing services, the app lets you see where your ferry is, tracks your journey and time until your ferry’s arrival - all on your mobile device.

COMMUNITY - Donate a plate for Wayside's Christmas!

Not everyone gets to spend Christmas surrounded by family and friends, with a ham on the table and gifts for all. The holiday season can be lonely and Wayside Chapel is committed to making the Christmas period a time to come together as a community and support those who are less fortunate and more vulnerable.

Wayside Chapel makes Christmas more special for people in need.

  • $25 will provide one meal to feed a homeless person

  • $50 will feed a couple

  • $100 will feed a family of four
