365 Places: Korora Beach

Day 31: Korora Beach, New South Wales, Australia

We are staying at Korora Beach for a week, hence the posts about the mid-north coast of New South Wales. After doing some research, we decided to stay at Smuggler’s on the Beach as it had great reviews on TripAdvisor, and so far our stay has been excellent.

Our accommodation is a first floor, one bedroom apartment with glimpses of the ocean (there are lots of trees). The apartment is clean and comfortable, with all the utilities you need to feel at home. At night we go to sleep with the sounds of the Pacific Ocean singing us a lullaby, and in the morning, the ocean calls us to wake up and greet the day. Life is good.

Korora Beach is one of the closest beach communities north of Coffs Harbour. There are quite a few ritzy seaside properties here, so probably not an area we could settle in, unless we win lotto 🙂 If you are driving up the Pacific Highway, it is just a bit further north from the famous Big Banana, (seen here in one of my art works and in a tourist shot).

I noticed on the website that the Big Banana lays claim to being the first of the big things, but after doing a project for 6 years on the Bigs (Big Banana Time Inc.), I thought that the Gympie Big Pineapple (not the one in Namour) was the first. Might be worth following up. But I digress.

This morning we woke early and went for a walk along the beach to take some photographs. These photos are just a small sample of our pictures, to see more check out Martin Drury’s photo essay Sunrise at Korora.
