To-day I lunched at the Coffs Harbour Gardens.

I have never lunched at the cafe here and was pleasantly surprised at how nice it is. They only have a small menu but what they have is fresh and tasty.
I had a BLT on turkish bread toasted and a mugacino. Very yummy and quite reasonably priced. Next time I visit I will be taking my camera and see what winter has to offer by way of flowers in our garden.


HANSI said that he had a lovely time in Coffs Harbour....just a pity that he couldn't stay longer.


WONDERFUL INFORMATION just to hand....well a couple of days ago I was impressed to learn of this. The Australian Government has produced a National Public Toilet Map website......www.toiletmap.gov.au Quoting from the information leaflet.....'this helpful site shows the location of over 15000 toilet facilities across Australia.....' It goes on to say that the toilet locations can also be accessed from your mobile phone for the cost of a standard call. AND the toilet map also offers trip-planning functions, downloading of GPS coordinates and large maps with a zoom function. Well it looks as though you will never be short of a loo when you are here.....wish Italy had the same.


Time to look up the featuredevents list.

Pet Porpoise Pool

Coffs Harbour does have a porpoise pool and accommodates many animals that for one reason or another are or have been unable to live outside the confines of the park. Some, of course have been born in captivity but mostly they have come as the result of an accident ......run over by a car........orphaned through fire or other kinds of misadventure. The Centre operators do train seals and dolphins to entertain visitors twice a day (if I remember correctly) and this with the sale of various souveniers provides much of the funding required to maintain the park.

The ideal Aussie Holiday Place

A special thought for to-day.

Be not the slave of your own past - plunge into the sublime seas, dive deep, and swim far, so you shall come back with self-respect, with new power, with an advanced experience, that shall explain and overlook the old.

Ralph Waldo Emerson's wise words.

Coffs Harbour as a holiday place from my perspective has it all. I am not into mad partying and headbanging music type of entertainment, although that happens there too, but not for me. I really enjoy, a swim, a walk along the beach, fresh fish and salad to eat, friendly coffee shops (and places that make nice breakfasts)- The Foreshores Cafe for one and the Muffin Break for another. The general scenery is breathtaking, the frequent visits from dolphins and whales - amazing - and all in all the fresh air to rejuvenate the soul is plentiful. There are a range of options for accommodation needs, that would cater for anyone that you know and the proprieters usually do it in style.



Great place to visit for a weekend or a month...........what would it be like to live there?

    It is a pity that we were not able to contact you earlier so that we could meet in Coffs Harbour. We enjoyed our brief visit to your town and did not miss out the big banana

    We have magpies to worry about here and plovers. When I was very young I was rolled by a wave at Coffs. I was born in Maclean on the Clarence. Marg
