Hastings Region Branch





Welcome to Hastings / Port Macquarie DSA web page. Our branch was originally established after the DSA visited Port Macquarie as pert of the ‘Little Ray of Sunshine Tour’ back in 2001.

In 2011 saw the rebirth of the branch with a new committee.

We are busily planning for this season, hoping to see past volunteers and participants as well as new faces. Volunteers are always required – we have a job for everyone.

To find out how you can help on the day, sponsor our branch or other general enquiries please call John Brownsberger.
