Coffs Ambassador for ‘Bush Tucker at Woolgoolga Lake’
Greg grew up on Moreton Island in south east Queensland and from an early age learnt how to fish and catch local seafood from his parents and close family friends- Ray Day and his family- a local indigenous family.
Throughout his life he has enjoyed sharing this practical knowledge of marine life with others. He has run fishing charters from Moreton Island and owned and operated an oyster farm in Moreton Bay, where he ran tours for tourists.
Only in recent years did Greg learn that his family was of Aboriginal descent. Since then he has been learning about bush tucker from his friend and Gumbaynggirr elder Mark Flanders and hopes to find out more about his indigenous family heritage.
Greg has lived at Mullaway for many years and over that time has taken his visiting friends and family on tours of the many natural areas of the northern beaches region. When he saw the first ad asking for Coffs Ambassadors in 2009, he thought it was a perfect program for him.
Since then Greg has taken hundreds of locals and visitors on his tour of Woolgoolga Lake, who frequently comment on how much they enjoy Greg’s down to earth and caring nature. These qualities, along with his knowledge of nature, make for a memorable tour experience, and make Greg a valued member of the Coffs Ambassadors team.
