Coffs Harbour - Bananas, Clogs And The Creek
Today we began with tacky and touristy at The Big Banana. We enjoyed the theatre presentation where we learnt all about the history of bananas and how they are grown. After that it was the obligatory frozen, chocolate coated banana on a stick. To finish we took some toboggan rides down the plantation hillside.
Continuing with touristy we visited the nearby Clogg Barn for a look around their model village and to see a demonstration of clog making using both traditional and modern tools.
The afternoon we spent relaxing and picnicking at Boambee Nature Reserve. Here the creek flows out towards the ocean and the water is warm and shallow with a sandy beach.
