Road Trippin – Day 18 – Homeward Bound – Newcastle NSW to Coffs Harbour

Coffs Harbour is one place I’ve heard so much about and have always wanted to visit, and I’m glad I did. Leaving Newcastle the weather was great and it seemed like a fairly good day for a ride.

This was another long ride so I just wanted to get to my destination, but when you’re on the road, there is so much to see and my curiosity tends to get the better of me, along with the thought of not heading back this way again! So I just had to stop and have a look at the National Motorcycle Museum, the Slim Dusty centre and the Australian Reptile Park. No prizes for guessing which one I liked the best 😜

Arriving in Coffs Harbour the weather wasn’t very kind with strong winds making it difficult to keep control of the bike, but the views made up for all the pain earlier in the day! I checked into the Coffs Jetty B&B which was nice but a little different. As I was traveling by myself I would have preferred a hotel to a B&B.

Tomorrow I head back to Brisbane, to a new job and hopefully a great year ahead!!! 🙂
