There are many Attractions and Tours for the tourist or visitor to North Coast, New South Wales. While in North Coast - check out some of these fantastic attractions and tours.
Coffs Harbour Regional Museum
The Coffs Harbour Regional Museum collects, preserves, interprets and exhibits items of historical significance from the Coffs Harbour region.
The museum is a valuable community asset that has about 10,000 artefacts, including a working lighthouse built around 1875 and a 1910 Star, which was the first motorised taxi in Coffs Harbour.
The museum provides information to school groups, university students and any other interested groups or individuals. Volunteers can help you find information on local pioneering history, produce displays on request and help you source books and historical photographs.
The Big Banana
Surely one of Australia’s most famous icons would have to be The Big Banana.
This giant structure modeled on a prize winning banana is probably the most photographed object in Australia. At any time of the day cameras are clicking away - individuals, couples, honeymooners, small groups, families, whole coach loads of people - all recording their visit to The Big Banana. Many are returning with children and grandchildren to continue a family tradition. Frequently the comment has been; “The Big Banana is not as big as I remember”. Well, it is still 11 metres long, 5 metres high, and 2.4 metres wide but the surrounding developments have lessened its impact.
Located just north of Coffs Harbour on the Pacific Highway, 565 kilometres north of Sydney and 450 kilometres south of Brisbane, The Big Banana is always a favourite stopping place with people of all ages and has been for over 30 years.
Offering fun rides, educational tours and exhibitions, recreational activities, a variety of food experiences as well as several retail outlets.
