Nature Coast - Narooma

SAFE is a group of concerned residents and we would
 like to invite you to consider the following:

  • In 2012 a hunting group asked permission of Eurobodalla Shire Council to run an event to promote hunting in Narooma each year for the next five years. They assured the council and concerned citizens that   there would be no guns or ammunition at the event.

 

  • In December 2013, at the group’s request, our council extended the permit to allow for guns to be on display as well as simulated hunting games and high powered archery.
  • In 2014 they tried to actually sell guns until council realised what was planned and a week before the event put a stop to the sales.
  • Since then, council gave permission for the sale of guns at Huntfest and various gun dealers have had stalls.
  • There have also been stalls advertising hunting safaris to Africa.
  •  In March 2016, ESC gave permission for the festival to be approved for a further 5 years.
  • The Huntfest organisers  have publicly admitted that they always intended to have an arms fair. They had been advised  not to apply for the arms fair permit initially so that they could get the approval passed by council. They were advised they could  then just apply for  amendments to their approval. 
  • This website documents some ( however not all) of the changes that have occurred since 2012
