COFFS HARBOUR

Coffs Harbour was a lovely large town to spend some time, and I will only include a few of our highlights. There are many fantastic beaches, although with a rushing tide a lot of the beaches that were flat were unsuitable for children. We did find park beach but it got deep very quick and once it go deep the current moved very quickly.

After exploring the area we found a track to the beach which you are allowed to drive on. We found it by accident but it was a lovely spot once we reached the end, which was a tidal river and a large cliff. The tide was nearly all the way out and left very shallow pools that Israel loved to run and splash in, a bonus being that the already warm water was warmed by the sun. We were hoping to revisit this place on the way home but changed our plans and drove inland home to explore some new places.

Then we visited the local and tiny foodies market with around 8 stalls. I didn't care I was in my element. This is where I bought my native finger lime.

To finish a great visit off we then drove up to Coffs Harbour forest sky pier this place isn't very well sign posted but I managed to wing our way there. It is located at Sealy lookout which also isn't sign posted. But if you turn left at Bruxner Park Road you should be able to navigate your way there. This place is well worth a visit with extensive views over Coffs Harbour, oceans and banana plantations.
