Despite this small town not appearing on our original itinerary between Sydney and Brisbane, we decided to visit upon trusted recommendation. According to the Lonely Planet, Coffs is "fairly
unattractive in itself, and crowded during the Christmas holidays". Whereas they were correct on the former observation, the latter couldn't be further from the truth. Never have I seen a town as
deserted as Coffs Harbour. Restaurants, fun fares, cafes and toursist centres were closed at weekends- a true waste of 3 days. I'm sure the cyclone didn't help either with its dull humid weather and
washed out beaches- and it is set to stay for another week.
