Pictures from Coffs Harbour Holiday 2004

Coffs Harbour Holiday 2004

We drove in my Prius upto Coffs Harbour via Ballarat and Dubbo.
The way back, we had a quick stop at Forster, which was a cute litte town, where we got very nice and filling Mexican food (see image 22), then spent a couple of nights at Polkobin in the Hunter Valley. We stayed toured a number of wineries and filled up the already full boot waith 3 dozen bottles of wine.

Next stop was Jervis bay, where we intended to stay 2 nights, but after not liking the atmosphere of the place we were staying, we decided to move on, and made a dash for Lakes Entrance. We had lunch at the Bega Cheese Factory, and made it to a motel as the sun was setting. We only spent one night there, and walked the beach track upto the entrance and back along the bushland track(5km), before driving back to Melbourne.

Fuel stops were at:
