BIG EFFORT: Dargaville’s new tourism brochure is finally finished and (L-R) Gordon Morfett, Jo Steiner, Trevor Donald, Trish Rolfe and Petrice Tarrant were some of the volunteers who pulled it off.

A new version of Dargaville's tourism brochure will capture the eyes of travellers all over the country.

The Kauri Coast Promotion Society's brochure committee has completed the 12 page, fold-out brochure after 10 months of hard work.

It lists places to eat and stay in Dargaville and Baylys Beach alongside things to do and historical information about Dargaville, Kai Iwi Lakes, Ripiro Beach and Waipoua Forest.

Travellers wanting to know where to go will be well guided by the two detailed maps of the coast line and the town centre.

Committee member Trish Rolfe says people who are travelling somewhere are more than welcome to take a bunch of brochures and distribute them on their way.

The brochures will be kept at the Kauri Coast Promotion Society's office (Dormavilla) and Dargaville Visitor Information Centre.


Those businesses that missed out on a listing will have an opportunity when a reprint is done in around 15 months.

Member Gordon Morfett says there have been 450,000 Dargaville brochures printed in the past.

"This is just the latest state of the art one."

Graphic designer Janet Balcombe has poured hours into the final product and Mrs Rolfe says her perserverance was outstanding.

"Without a good group you can't get anywhere."

The official launch will be held tonight 5.30pm tonight at the Commercial Bed and Breakfast Hotel on River Rd.

Everyone is welcome to come along for the pot luck dinner and presentation. Bring a plate and BYO.
