Junee Licorice & Chocolate Factory
| |

A flashback from April!  We spent a couple of nights in Junee to visit the Junee Licorice & Chocolate Factory and the Junee Roundhouse Museum.  It seemed like all the other travellers only spent one night.  They’d arrive midday and visit both of these places that afternoon, then they were off in the morning.  The ease of travelling without kids!  Visiting both attractions the same day would have been too much for us, especially with a toddler.  We chose to … Read More

Byron Bay – Most Easterly Point in Australia!
| |

While we were staying in Hastings Point we drove down to Byron Bay to visit the most eastern point on the Australian mainland.  It’s at the Cape Byron lighthouse, which is a state conservation area and a really popular spot, especially on the weekend!  We drove up to the top only to find it too crowded to park.  We were lucky to find a spot not too far down the drive so we were able to easily walk up to … Read More

Hastings Point, NSW
| |

After Coffs Harbour we went a bit north to a small town called Hastings Point.  We stayed at a lovely caravan park there, complete with a waterpark, indoor play place, and kids’ activities.  They had morning craft sessions and an evening disco on the weekend, great fun for the kids.  We met another family who were just getting ready to begin their journey around Australia.  They lived nearby and had just moved out of their rental house and into their … Read More

Dorrigo National Park
| |

While we were in Coffs Harbour we drove over to Dorrigo National Park.  We’d heard that there was a walk you could do where you get to walk behind a waterfall.  Doesn’t that sound fun?  Something to remember.  On the drive up there were other waterfalls to see.  In fact, part of the drive is called Waterfall Way. The visitor centre was quite nice with a cute shop and cafe. There’s a terrific lookout behind the visitor centre, the Skywalk … Read More

Muttonbird Island, Coffs Harbour
| |

It rained a lot while we were in Coffs Harbour.  We watched the weather while we were there and chose a sunny afternoon to walk to Muttonbird Island. TurboBug decided he had to push his pram.  The entire way.  He’s such a toddler.  This walkway goes all the way out to the island.  Ocean on one side, a boat marina and fish market on the other. We found these mosaics along the way.  I’m wondering if these were commissioned or … Read More

The Big Banana
| |

Coffs Harbour is famous for bananas.  Especially the Big Banana, which was one of the first Big Things in Australia.  Big Things are…um…a thing here.   This one is located right next to the motorway, you can’t miss it if you drive through Coffs Harbour.  We didn’t know until we go there that you can actually walk through the Big Banana.  Inside is various information about bananas and a video where you can watch some (green) bananas being picked and packed.  … Read More
