Mr Coconut Man

Cape Panwa Hotel is built on the side of the hill on an east-coast peninsula. The land was originally used for a coconut plantation. The hotel's buildings try to blend in with the plantation, producing a charming effect but this does not come without its difficulties.

The coconut trees thrive in the humid environment of the hotel's grounds and many of the trees are over 20 metres tall, making them bend and sway with the sea breezes and creating a hazard in windy conditions, with falling coconuts aparticular danger.

This is where the Coconut Man comes in. To watch him scale a tall and slender tree to cull, then drop the nuts from a great height has to be seen to be believed.
