How many people does it take to change an address?

The Castle has a new address.

I was so happy to learn this morning that The Macadamia Castle has a new address which will take effect when the new highway opens.

We will be 419 Hinterland Way, Knockrow. Finally we can now start to print our new maps and advertising material.

Over the past  six years we have been repeatedly requesting this detail from  the RMS Pacific Highway manager, the NSW minister for roads, the ex member for Ballina, Don Page, the minister for regional tourism John Barilaro and Ballina Council.

Over 50 letters and emails were written.

Finally, the mayor of Ballina, David Wright, managed to cut through the red tape. Thanks Mr Mayor.

Who would have thought it was so difficult to get a new address. Our location of course does not change and people will find us just two minutes from the Lennox Head exit when the new highway opens.

Tony Gilding, Macadamia Castle
