The Big Banana - Coffs Harbour


The Big Banana is Australia's original and most famous 'Big Thing'.

This giant structure was modelled on a prize winning banana back in 1964 and is probably the most photographed object in Australia.

The Big Banana is no longer just a banana, it now boasts a multitude of rides and attractions including a water park, ice skating rink, toboggan ride, 'The World of Bananas' Theatre and Tour Experience, state-of-the-art laser tag arena, Candymaking Kitchen, gift shop, cafe, nursery, lookout and a new 36 hole mini golf course.

Located just north of Coffs Harbour on the Pacific Highway, 565 kilometres north of Sydney and 450 kilometres south of Brisbane, The Big Banana is always a favourite stopping place for people of all ages.

The Big Banana is a whole 'bunch' of fun!
