Cute, but I agree with the other posts, it is a wee bit tired looking. The souvenir shop again was also rather average. But the man behind the counter was friendly, and welcoming. Glad it was free and families with young kids would love it!

For small kids it would be fun, especially when the entry fee is $0, but nothing much really attracting the tourist. We missed the clog-making demonstration (bugger), however the walk around the miniature village was interesting, complete with working windmills.

This place seems to be in a desperate state of repair and looks old and very tired. Everything about it including the restaurant needs some maintenance.

I was quite disappointed that the model village and whole place overall seems to be in DESPERATE need of some cleaning, painting and all around TLC and general maintenance. The big clogs at the front look dirty and in need of painting (see photo). The little waterways in the model village are brown and dirty and mouldy looking, and there... More

The mini Holland out the back is a real labour of love, amazing, complete with draw bridges, red light district, ann frank's house, the boy who stuck his finger in the dyke and a working model train. The coffee on the other hand was so bleeding hot I still have blisters on the roof of my mouth a week later,... More

The food was always freshly prepare so be aware that time can pas s whilst you wait for your order to be cooked. Generally a very friendly atmosphere created by the Dutch folk.

The miniature Dutch buildings are interesting to look at and inside the clog display is worth a look over. The experience was reduced by the amount of kitch and poor quality items in the gift shop.

A pleasant surprise. We have visited Coffs Harbour many times in the past but sadly have always bypassed The Clog Barn. This visit saw us stop to stretch our legs here. What a nice surprise. The Clog Barn has miniature Dutch replica villages on display. The display is interesting, well kept and worth a look at. There is a nice... More
