Coffs Harbour

We enjoyed the Park Beach Caravan Park in Coffs Harbour, located close to the beach but protected from sea winds. It has a nice pool with lots of kids features. Coffs Harbour has incredible views of the Pacific Ocean from the headlands and lookouts. We enjoyed riding our bikes along a bike path  from our Caravan Park to Mutton Bird Island. It is connected to the mainland by a breakwater. Mutton Birds migrate all the way from the Philippines to nest here. We saw a whale and dolphins from here on a calm morning. We enjoyed the creek walk at the Botanical Gardens which follows Coffs Creek. The gardens has plants from all over the world. The new Forest Sky Pier, at Sealy Lookout, has great views of the dense rainforest and Eucalypt forest and also some banana and avocado plantations. We also did a short walk along another 4wd track to see views to the south. Our van had  a small leak in the skylight which we were thankfully able to get fixed at a specialised repair workshop in Coffs Harbour before the next heavy rain.
