We were recently walking on the beach and AJ stopped to point out a plastic shopping bag lying on the sand at the water’s edge, saying, “Mum we should pick that up or it could end up killing a turtle, dolphin or bird.” As much as I didn’t fancy picking up the dirty wet bag, I did. How could I not? Our visits to zoos, animal parks and
While staying at North Coast Holiday Parks Urunga Heads, news was spreading that a new accessible walk had just been unveiled and was open to the public so of course we had to go and check it out. It was so new, locals were only just discovering it themselves. We met a local couple who were in awe of the $10 million dollar transformation of
Donning a helmet for a trike ride isn’t something I often do but holidays provide unique opportunities which I revel in trying.

Urunga may only be a 20 minute drive south of the well known coastal town of Coffs Harbour but after our recent experience we feel it’s a hidden gem visitors to the region often miss. We were fortunate to be staying in the sleepy town and loved every minute. While the main street of the town is quiet, the boardwalk is not. Urunga Boardwalk is a meeting place for locals and
While staying at Urunga, we decided to exchange our thongs (flip flops) for walking boots and head to Dorrigo National Park, a one hour drive from Coffs Harbour. The chance to explore part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area, the most extensive strip of diverse rainforest anywhere on earth, with a TrailRider lured us away from the coast. Although we can access many
COFFS HARBOUR – WONDERFUL IN WINTER Let me introduce myself. I’m Sue, an Occupational Therapist but first and foremost a mum to 3 young children. I have a keen interest in access not only for those using wheelchairs or mobility aids, but also considering I have a toddler who is often in a pram. When choosing our mid-year holiday we wanted one that did not
