Each business usually has a story of where it began and how it came to fruition. Our business is no different; we’ve published a number of articles over the years on how Ray McCarthy formed Coffs Harbour Hardwoods back in 1961 and where it is has grown to today. Ray was the son of Jack McCarthy, Jack along with the rest of The McCarthy’s all had timber in their blood and as you’ll read by this article you will see where it all began back in Herons Creek where their skills with the axe were honed.
Thank you to the people of the Herons Creek Heritage Trail Committee for putting this together. Check out their website http://www.heronscreek.com.au
