We spent a few days of the previous school holiday the Coffs Harbour. It's about 5 hours drive from home but there were detours, so it took almost 7. On the way, there are lots of goods things to see so it's never boring.
The Tatapilla went camping with the Scouts. The Scouts camping ground is located near the center of the town. It has powered sites and un-powered sites. Activities such as kayaking and abseiling. There are areas for bonfire at night.
On my last business trip to Sydney, I stayed at the Castle Hill Lodge. The customer I was visiting was at the Hills area and they booked for my accommodation. The Castle Hill Lodge is a quaint place to stay. It is situated close the main road but it was not that noisy. I enjoyed my stay.
Maleny is a historic town in the Sunshine Coast. It's situated in the hinterland. The town centre is quite touristy. There are boutiques, antique shops and cafes.
One of the places we visited in Maleny when my friend came over was the Botanic Garden. It's 16 acres of walking around. The views are awesome, the plants and flowers are pretty. I remember, Mcj's niece had her wedding there. The Tatapilla meandered around on his own and wanted to do it again when we finished.
Driving to Maleny, the scenery are awesome. Lush trees and mountains are surrounding the roads.
My friend and I went to Southbank as well. We played tourists of course and have some food there and browse at the markets.
A friend of mine visited for a weekend so we did a bit of exploring in the city. First stop, of course, is coffee at Starbucks. We shopped a bit too at the H & M, it's somewhat new in Australia.
Queen St is a bustling part of the city as most of the shops are there. The part that I know of is mostly for pedestrian. There are restos and cafe in the middle.
Here are some view of the buildings. There are always buskers.
