HITTING THE WAVES
An early morning swim and surf at popular Macauleys Beach begins day two, and has us hanging ten in no time. After filling up on custard crumble pancakes at the Surf Club Restaurant and Bar, we stroll along the Coastal Creek walk, receiving friendly hellos and bell dings from beachgoers heading to the foreshore. Soon, the famous historical timber Jetty stretches out in front of us towards Muttonbird Island, a sanctuary for nesting seabirds. The kids delight in searching for whales making their annual pilgrimage along the 'humpback highway' and jetty-spotting turtles, rays and dolphins. We head to uber-cool Supply Cafe for brunch of truffle eggs before jumping onboard with eco-accredited Jetty Dive for a fast boat ride around Solitary Islands Marine Park. Our salt-spray-in-the-face experience is made even more exciting by the promise of curious whales checking out our vessel.
Meandering through the marina, we grab a haul of fresh prawns and shucked oysters from the Coffs Harbour Fishermen's Co-op to enjoy back at the park.
