Writers’ Reviews of Time and Tide

Time and Tide is a journey through past and present written by a small group of local writers who invite you to share their passion for Port Stephens Shire where they live.
This well laid out anthology, enhanced by black and white illustrations, and a cover photograph of a local beach, is a worthy ‘must have’ for residents and visitors.
Christine Gregory

Immerse yourself in Port Stephens’ past and present as our writers share their experiences with stories and poems. Enjoy each writer’s style as they capture the moment. And golfers may take pleasure in golfing moments shared with our local wild life.
Annette Jones

Come and join with me into the world of local writers whose writing brings to life the heart, soul and beach of Port Stephens.

Be inspired by each writer’s story about the Shire’s natural beauty written in a heart warming way. Read ‘Tanilba’ and ‘Mambo Wanda Wetlands’, or the ‘Irrawang Pottery’ and ’Swimming with dolphins’. Be fascinated by the antics of ‘Cockatoos’ and enjoy local bird life in ‘Neighbours’. Or read about the history of the Inner and Outer Lighthouses, once guardians of our coast. You and family and friends will enjoy this beautifully illustrated anthology.

Take time to ride the waves, the beach dunes, the tracks of Port Stephens with local writers. Trail through past times and tides of the past and follow today’s tracks into the bush, onto the beaches and into the hinterland for good times and good tidings.
