  Some of what you'll see at the Botanical Gardens
by iandsmith

Located roughly half way between Sydney and Brisbane, Coffs has long been a favourite stopover between the two cities.
Thus tourism has always played a major part in its development and accommodation has always been in abundance.
It has reasonable beaches in the town area but the best ones are a little further north, such as Sapphire, Sandy, Woolgoolga and others.
It has other attractions such as the Big Banana, plenty of shopping and licensed clubs for entertainment.
It is backed by hills and the local weather pundits will tell you that "When the clouds touch the top of the hills, it will start to rain".
Usually that happens on summer afternoons.
One of my favourite spots is the Botanical Gardens where you can spend a leisurely hour wandering amongst the lovely plants by the creek.
