I really thought this would be a valued cultural visit but it is little more than a tourist shop with the accompanied prices. Little value and not an attraction.

We stopped here on our way travelling through, and for a place to have a coffee break. The cafe overlooks a lovely tropical setting, and right next to that is the Clog Barn, with it's miniature dutch buildings and windmills in the garden. It is so much more interesting to look around than the usual four walls, and these lovely... More

Interesting clog making demo. Model train and windmill display great. Bought a couple of ice blocks and poster only. No sales pressure , just a friendly host and a great attraction.

We had not really planned to visit the Clog Barn during our stay at Coffs, but went one day for lunch to try something a little different. We all loved the food, and ended up going back another day for breakfast. The clog making demo happened to be on after our lunch and we found it to be very interesting.... More

A ok visit. The tour to the miniature world is ok. It is not very well maintained - I believe that in the challenge if you were to offer the visit for free. The clog making demonstration is not despite scheduled at 4pm. Probably because we are the only visitors around at the time. One of the reason we planned... More

The clog barn is still as good as ever. I love the windmills and miniature buildings that are through the rear door of the shop. A wonderland of old historic dutch buildings and a train track as well. The sails on the windmills are enjoyed by young and old. Clog making demonstrations are held at various times of the day...

this was ok in many ways to visit, good talk on the clogs, and to take photos in and around the windmills etc.. but it is tired, old , and really when we saw the inside of the accommodation we decided that it was not the best place to stay in .. cafe drinks were fine, but it was busy... More

The Clog Barn in Coffs Harbour is part of a complex with an accomodation park, coffee house and the Clog Barn itself. Just off the Pacific Highway in Coffs city, easy to find and worth visiting. The miniature village is free admission, and takes you through the famous buildings of Holland, with working trains (pushing a button by the gate),... More

This is FREE! Includes an informative talk on clog making and a stroll around the miniature village of windmills, castles, train stations, Anne Frank's house and even the Heineken factory! This was a little treat for our 8 month old and US, staff were friendly and it truly was a pleasant experience! Loved it!!
