Explore #160, December 29th, 2008
I'm staying in Coffs Harbour, NSW.
No visit to Coffs Harbour can be called complete without a tip to the Big Banana.
I waited for over 45 minutes to get this shot, as one group left another arrived, naturally I didn't want people in this photo, so the wait was necessary, as I waited the storm clouds rolled over, so it all paid off in the end.
