I was an athlete throughout my 20s so hospitality allowed me the flexibility to be away a lot. Then I soon realised how much I loved hospitality and that incredible feeling of being apart of a community that revolves around your local cafe. My wife and I wanted our kids to grow up here in paradise in the northern rivers and have had Black Drop in the making for some time. We have been searching for the perfect fit and Pottsville was chosen because of the community-minded spirit and incredible access to the creek, beaches and hinterland.
We have always loved Blackboard coffee, we were on a flight juggling the kiddos at the same time Nick was juggling kiddos and we got chatting about food, travel and coffee. It was meant to be. There was an instant connection with everything that Blackboard is all about.
Time with my family and friends and getting outdoors......Camping and cooking on the open fire, snorkelling and ocean time and we love finishing the day with a sunset beer or two at the beach.
The creek is incredible, the beaches are private and stunning and the hinterland is at our doorstep. The town has that iconic Australian beachside village feel.
Coffee with Bill Murray would be pretty interesting and no doubt full of laughs.
