You think you’ve seen a big piece of fruit? Child, please. You haven’t seen anything until you go to Coffs Harbour and check out the Big Banana. Then we can talk.
But this place isn’t just about an oversized piece of fruit, oh no. There’s pretty beaches, thriving markets and several nearby national parks. Check out lastminute.com.au’s Coffs Harbour holiday packages and go there now.
Before you do anything touristy, get a vehicle from lastminute.com.au’s great car hire options in Coffs Harbour and then hit the road with a camera around your neck. Why do you need that photo-capturing device? Because you should make your way to the Big Banana, a giant piece of folly architecture, and take a snapshot in front of it. There’s a banana plantation-themed amusement park with rides and souvenir shops for you to check out, too. An oversized banana during holidays in Coffs Harbour? Yes please!
Once you’re all bananaed out, take the 50-km drive to Dorrigo National Park and hike through surroundings that look like they came out of the movie Avatar. Go to the Skywalk Lookout for sweeping views of the entire park all the way to the coast. If you have a fear of heights, get over it, because this is a must-do. After that, take the Crystal Shower Falls Walk and cross the suspension bridge to go behind the falls. Everyone has seen a waterfall, but it’s the view from behind that will make your Coffs Harbour holiday unforgettable.
Isn’t it nice that you saved tons of money through our Coffs Harbour holiday deals? Take some of those savings to the Jetty and Harbourside Markets. You can find all sorts of crafts here like Aboriginal canvas art and boomerangs. There’s also modern malls like Park Beach Plaza and Promenade that have huge department stores for you to get your shop on
Enough shopping already! It’s time to eat. Make your way to the jetty area, specifically Harbour Drive, and eat wherever you want. There’s cafes, juice bars, seafood joints and everything in between. Another good area for dining is in the Promenade shopping centre. Sit down at one of the fine steakhouses and order up a filet of kangaroo. Delicious.
Shopping? Done. Eating? Done. Nightlife? Underway. Hang around in the Jetty area and go from the table to the bar in no time. There’s quite a few hotels along the water with bars that have beautiful views of the ocean. Victoria Bitters all night!
