MidCoast Stories is a collection of stories and local resources that preserve and promote our region’s unique history. The stories are intentionally short, factual and often quirky, describing the people, places, and events that have influenced our region.

Where is the MidCoast?

The MidCoast integrates the former Gloucester, Great Lakes and Manning regions of NSW. Click the map below to explore the MidCoast in detail.

More than stories

While the stories are central to this project, you will find a wealth of other local resources, including transcribed rates books for three former council regions, local photographs, and resources to help you do your own research. There is also a section of educational resources to connect students with their local history.
