A cycle of surprises
KOALAS are among the surprises hidden in the quiet bushland reserves that dot Toormina.
Next Sunday, May 16, Coffs Ambassadors Ian Scott and Wendy Frost will show visitors why this is so, as they take cyclists on a guided bicycle tour of the suburb’s bushland reserves from 9am to 10.30am.
Ian Scott said the suburb contained stands of three different species of koala food trees, which made it attractive to the aerial marsupial.
He said the medium-grade 8.5km bicycle ride would take participants off the beaten track, on cycle paths and unsealed bush tracks.
“There are nice bits of old-growth forest which people are not aware of and it is prime koala habitat,” Mr Scott said.
The tour is not suitable for very young riders but is fine for older children.
Bookings are essential and can be made with Coffs Harbour City Council on 6648 4676.
