The Climate

Although Coffs Harbour is in New South Wales it actually has a micro-climate similar to northern Queensland.  The days can be warm and humid, which is probably why so many people move to the area for their retirement.  It’s also a very good climate for growing bananas.
It might be hard to see in the photo above but the hill is covered with a banana plantation.
Zooming in makes it easier to see.  If you look closely you might be able to see the front row of trees have all their bananas in plastic bags to protect them.  All the trees in the plantation are protected using this method.
And what does Coffs Harbour pride itself on?  Just the place to buy anything banana!
