Len Bates, Mullumbimby.

Wouldn’t it be loverly if the 40 hectare range, which includes the top of Mt Chincogan and the two other smaller peaks, were a state park so that everyone could take a stroll up there and enjoy the view and vibe?

Mt Chincogan is such an important landmark for Mullumbimby, not to mention its historical and Aboriginal heritage.

Let’s hope the community one day can work toward that goal.
