    Location: we live in a town called Coffs Harbour, in Australia! It is between Sydney and Brisbane on the east coast. It is the perfect spot if you like the ocean and all things nature really! We live a 20 min walk to the beach, but we go by car with the dogs almost daily you are welcome to join! We are a 5 min walk to the center where you will find great cafes, supermarket, skate park, botanic garden, shops and resturants. In Coffs you have the oppurtunity to visit local markets, national parks, marine reserves, water sports, creeks, beaches among many others!
