Church Point Cafe -  Artists play between 3:30 - 6:30pm


Yes there'll be steam all right when Matt & band hit the stage this Sunday at the Co-Op Club playing some blues, some soul and other groovy tunes with some special guests too.
Book a table!  3.30pm-6.30pm

Sun Aug 14:  GREEN LIMOUSINE:image

Green Limousine is a local northern beaches group of amazing musicians led by John Spence on guitar & vocals with Rick Melick on keys & vocals, Ian Lees bass & Billy Handley on drums & vocals. These guys rocked the Co-Op Club last time with their 3 part harmonies and great songs from Led Zeppelin to the blues so don't miss them.


Rebecca Johnson band return as a Co-Op Club favourite. Rebecca is a seasoned, kick ass bass player and she sings great as well! Joining her is her funky drummer husband Con Settineri and Mark Johns on guitar. Together they whip up versions of songs by Bob Marley, Prince, Stevie Wonder & Macy Gray that have the whole joint jumping.

Sun Aug 28: LIZA OHLBACK:image

Liza Ohlback is back at the Co-Op Club and it's a good thing she is because she is one of Australia's great singers. This multi-award winning artist always brings with her an equally great band and they play the kind of music we all need, soul, blues, gospel & jazz - both from her award winning albums or from other great artist's albums.

Music is every Sunday between 3.30 - 6.30pm

We are looking for enthusiastic, knowledgeable Pittwater residents to share their passions at our Pittwater Discovery Tour lunchtime presentation.

Paddlecraft, located at the Bayview Marina, is working with the National Parks to develop tours that help promote conservation and awareness of Pittwater through nature based activities like kayaking and bush walking. We are aiming to offer a full day tour this season with some options for a lunch time stop that would incorporate a talk or demonstration from a Pittwater local perhaps highlighting conservation issues or programs, or local flora and wildlife or even artwork or local history. Paddlecraft would provide the catering but we are searching for a place to conduct this activity and people that would be interested in presenting. So if you are interested in doing a presentation or if you have a boat house or picnic area that could be used please contact Helen at or directly at Paddlecraft at 9997 8015.
