Things To Do In and Around Coffs Harbour

As you drive into Coffs Harbour, one of the first things you will notice is the Big Banana, mostly because, well, there is a big banana…

The kids spent a thoroughly enjoyable four hours in the Big Banana, they just loved the toboggan ride. But most of their fun was in the water park slipping and sliding around on the various slippery slides.

The fun they had there though was totally eclipsed by their visit to Dolphin Marine Magic..

Dolphin magicThis is where you go if you want to be kissed by a dolphin, and all of our girls wanted to be kissed by a dolphin. And they were. Here’s Elizabeth getting her kiss…

For me though, the best day out was when we drove inland for about an hour or so. First we passed through the historic town of Bellingen…

Dangar FallsAs our girls still had their togs on from the visit to the beach in the morning, they fancied a dip as well. So, we wondered, how can we get down there? There was a pathway not far from where we were standing…
