Five fun things to do today

IT'S set to be another sunny day so ditch the couch and head outside. 

Here's five things you could do with your day today:

Adventure on horseback

Strap yourself into a saddle and embark on a horse-riding adventure through the beautiful Valery Trails of Pine Creek Forest and Bongil Bongil National Park. The Saddle Club and pony rides are great options for the kids, while the adults will be able to relax by the pool and enjoy the barbecue facilities. For more information call 6653 4301.

Tour the waters

Head out on the water with Liquid Assets on a surfing, white water rafting or surf rafting tour. The platypus tour down the Nymboida River is another popular option and will have you canoeing along these peaceful waters at dusk in the hope of spotting this rare and cheeky Australian creature. To book a tour call 6658 0850.

Ride a buggy

Experience the best of both worlds on a Beach to Bush Buggy ride. Tackle the bush before cruising along the white sands of the beach in a buggy that can fit up to three people. Prices start at just $15 and to find out more call 6651 3564.

Bowl some nine-pin

Everyone has heard about tenpin bowling, but what about nine-pin, which is all the rage these days. Played in much the same way, with one less pin, locations in Coffs Harbour and Moonee both offer great facilities and provide the perfect excuse for a family day out. Give them a call on 6653 7706 to find out more.

Watch the butterflies fly

Be amazed by the beauty and diversity of Australia's butterflies at the Coffs Harbour Butterfly House, Maze and Tearooms. Positioned in an indoor rainforest setting, a day here will let you discover the fascinating colours and patterns of these beautiful creatures. The outdoor maze will also keep the kids entertained for hours. Start discovering a world of butterflies by calling 6653 4766.
