    • If you're heading down to the Nambucca River Festival this weekend (at Macksville on the river!) here's a little something to help you on your way- a program and map. Be sure to drop on by the TAFE stall and say hello- we'll be helping paint the puppets for the dusk drumming parade with local organisation Ability Links. #nctafe #expressyourself #macksville #nambuccavalley
