The Big Banana in Coffs Harbour

The Big Banana in Coffs Harbour

The Big Banana in Coffs Harbour, New South Wales, is a certified tourist drawer and crowd pleaser. The Big Banana has become a symbol for the city of Coffs Harbour, and rightly so since banana farming is the city’s main industry. Coffs Harbour has also been named the most livable city in Australia and many people have moved to the lovely coastal town to get away from the loud and busy city life.

The Big Banana features a giant banana mock-up that visitors can walk through to enter a complex where banana-inspired and related products are displayed and sold. The grounds have been around since 1964 and houses a restaurant, a souvenir shop and an authentic banana plantation. It is one of Australia’s most endeared tourists spots. Visitors flock to this spot all year round either to gifts for loved ones, learn about the country’s banana industry or simply to get their picture taken next to the big banana.

Apart from being Australia’s hub for its banana industry, Coffs Harbour also has a small natural reef that is quite popular as an underwater diving spot. There is also the nearby Solitary Islands Marine Park where an underwater diverse ecosystem thrives. Just out to sea is Muttonbird Island, a well managed nature reserve that protects a Wegde-tailed Shearwater habitat and breeding site.

Should you ever find yourself on a big Australian adventure, you should never pass up the chance to visit the Big Banana in Coffs Harbour. If you decide to get caught up in the culture and history of this amazing coastal city, be sure to head on over to the Town Lodge Motor Inn to experience accommodation in Coffs Harbour at its best.
