It's on the way - almost there infact, and 5 and a half hours drive from Sydney in good traffic. The problem is it is going to take us right past my family, and we may have to stop in for lunch. That would be at Terrigal. They are great - you would feel comfortable with them.
My cousin Rebecca and her husband live at Coffs harbor and could put us up for the night. Either we stop here, see the sights and stay the night, or we drive right through. Up to you guys.
This is one thing though that we need to know ASAP. I need to let them know, and also we can drive right through easy (saves time and money - but 8 hours driving). Either is OK by me, but again, need to know.
However on the way to Coffs Harbor there is the big banana, the big clam, the big shrimp and some other big crap to look at. You see it on the drive by, i don't know if it is worth stopping in at each.
Not going past this spot on the way back either. We stay or skip forever.
