Bunker down for some laughter at cartoon exhibition

HAS your group been to the Bunker yet?

If you’re the social secretary then continually finding something new and different for your group’s monthly meetings can be a little difficult.

Coffs Harbour's Bunker Cartoon Gallery is not only a unique, spacious venue where the group can have a good laugh but a World War 2 underground bunker with a fascinating story to tell.

Admission to the Bunker is only $3 a person and The Bunker also offers delicious morning and afternoon teas in the gallery with a little wartime history talk provided for just $7 a person which includes the admission fee.

Currently showing at the Bunker until July 10 is the Grin Bin exhibition featuring works by Mark Lynch.

Mark is the cartoonist behind the funny little cartoon that has become a much-anticipated part of the Coffs Coast’s daily life since its inclusion in the Advocate in August last year.

Mark has been a great supporter of the Bunker Cartoon Gallery going back to the Bunker’s opening in 1996 and to celebrate this fruitful 30 year relationship the exhibition of around 120 of Mark’s Grin Bin, Clancy and Gen Why cartoons will run until Sunday July 10.

Following on from the Grin Bin exhibition is the annual Rotary Cartoon Awards exhibition which features works from Australia’s leading cartoonists who compete for over $11,000 in prize money by entering the Awards competition. The 28th Rotary Cartoon Awards will run from July 16 until August 28.

Plenty of parking is available at the Bunker and people with disabilities can be easily catered for.

The Bunker Cartoon Gallery, John Champion Way, Coffs Harbour. Open 7 days 10am – 4pm. Advance booking is required for the morning or afternoon teas by phoning 6651 7343 or
