Newcastle to Grafton


Today the boys were facing a pleasant trip along the “Gold Coast” with its many beach towns and they planned to stay over at Coffs Harbour only to find out that there is absolutely no accommodation available due to some school sports events.


Coffs Harbour is a city on the north coast of New South Wales, Australia. It’s known for its beaches and the Big Banana monument and amusement park. In the waters off Coffs Harbour Marina is the Solitary Islands Marine Park, home to abundant wildlife, seasonal whales and coral reefs. Just east is the Mutton-birds Island Nature Reserve, with its large population of wedge-tailed shearwater birds
