Welcome to our Nethercote Community Website!
Our beautiful rural locality of Nethercote lies 450 kms south of Sydney, 550 kms north east of Melbourne and 250 kms south east of Canberra. Our homes, on various sized acreages, are nestled among rolling green hills and stunning valleys, but we are only 10 kms inland from the coastal towns of both Eden and Pambula.
Approximately 500 people live here, in around 200 homes; it’s hard to establish exact numbers when you’re spread over about 40 square kilometres (to see a map of Nethercote, click here).
This 21st century version of the “bush telegraph” seemed like a good idea because lots of things happen in Nethercote but sometimes it’s hard to communicate them. A website can let people know about things easily, quickly and widely. Having no village shops and being so scattered, we don’t “bump into” each other very much. Although we have a large notice-board at our recently rebuilt Community Hall it’s already overflowing with notices. Not everyone has access to the internet, so will still put important notices there too. We also hope it will be helpful for new arrivals to our community and our friends in neighbouring localities.
We have a strong sense of community here; most residents have been involved in one way or another during the past 12 years of fundraising and rebuilding our dilapidated Community Hall. Many of those fundraisers continue to be regular events, with some new ones becoming popular on the social calendar.
Many residents operate small businesses and they are invited to advertise, without cost, on this website. We encourage others to support them, for they have been generous in their support with fundraising events and rebuilding; it’s a small way of saying “thank you”.
Tabs at the top of the page will take you to other areas or the Site Map tab will provide an overview of everything available at a glance. We hope you enjoy exploring the site and look forward to receiving items for inclusion.
