The Vincent Tree
Once you've had a look from the lookout, it pays to head further into the forest by returning to the main road and turning left. This will take you to the Vincent Tree, named after a Minister for Forests in the first half of the 20th century.The tree is an impressive...
Coffs Creek walk

Park Beach is the most common beach people head to when visiting because it's just north of the harbour itself and, with accommodation adjacent, is popular with tourists.These pictures were taken at the northern end where there's a carpark and a walk over the headland that...
Sapphire is just one of many beaches north of Coffs that have lovely names but are only good for a beach walk because the surf is not user friendly due to the steep dropoffs. Some of this is due to the offshore Solitary Islands that have a significant effect on the...
This is a secluded bay not that far from Coffs at all. It can be accessed from Diggers Beach by a walk over the headland or from Kororo Bay where there's a carpark at one end.It's not a place for surf and is generally protected from the swells unless there's a cylcone up...

Harvey Norman: Discrimination at Harvey Norman's Coffs Harbour

Mount Coramba (near Coffs Harbour)
DO NOT take this road unless you have a 4wd. It is very rough, and once on it, there isn't anywhere to turn around. Worse, when you reach the top of the Mountain, the views are little, not worth the back breaking car ride.

So, the pictures you see here are of some of my favourite walks so far.Because I have a diverse...
Painting a picture
There's an artist by the name of Robert Bosler; he's located just behind the Yacht Club on Marina Drive. If you have the time I can but recommend that you stop for a visit if you like art. Some of his stuff is top shelf and it's so good to walk in and see an artist at...
