Coffs Harbour - Flora And Fauna

Today we began with an trip to Dolphin Marine Magic at Coffs Harbour. Although pricey, and very touristy, this attraction was a lot of fun. We got to have seal and dolphin kisses, watch the sea-life show, feed the fish, seals and penguins.

After a quick stop to find another geocache we headed off to the Coffs Harbour Botanic Gardens for a picnic and walk. Lots of different habitats are displayed here including rainforest and mangrove swamp. We walked through the glass-houses and along the boardwalks spotting birds and interesting plants. There was even a maze to explore.

Later in the afternoon we drove down to Mutton Bird Island.

We didn't see any mutton birds but we did spot this heron.

After that it was time for freshly caught and cooked, fish n chips by the marina before heading back to camp.
