The Harbour

With the town named “Coffs Harbour” you would expect there to actually be a harbour; and you would be right.  Originally it must have been rather small, however two outer island have each been joined to the mainland by a causeway thereby creating a much larger artificial harbour.

One of the islands is named Muttonbird Island.  Yes; it’s a breeding ground for muttonbirds which make good eating, although I think the birds in this particular location might be protected!  The island is to the right in the photo below with the low causeway to the left.  In the middle left corner of the harbour is the local marina.

This next photo was taken from the other island and shows the entrance to the harbour.
