WWFF Kororo Nature Reserve VKFF-2638

After stopping overnight in Coffs Harbour headed for a nearby park for a first activation, Kororo Nature Reserve VKFF-2638. This park is quite small and is in the suburb of Korora, just North of Coffs Harbour and just North of "The Big Banana" tourist park (Coffs Harbour is famous for growing bananas :))

Drove on the Pacific Hwy, turning off into the Old Coast Rd. Just after the turnoff there is a road on the left that runs past the Eastern edge of the park.

The vegetation is thick sub-tropical rain forest, no hope of walking into it. Drove along until seeing another sign for the park, and a spot where I could be off the road and within the park boundary. Set up the shack using the park sign to support the squid pole.

Operating spot, from Protected Planet.

Looking along the road. Note power lines nearby, did give me a little QRM, also noise from the busy highway nearby.

Shack on the table

Got on 40 m. Worked some of the usual park hunters. Fairly slow as a week day.


A park to park with VK4FW/mm Bill in VKFF-1540 Ex-HMAS Brisbane Conservation Park. This is a marine park off the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, he was marine mobile.


As had 12 contacts enough to qualify under VKFF, packed up and continued driving North up the coast.
