Hugging the shoreline of New South Wales’ Mid North Coast, Coffs Harbour pairs coastal luxury with a rich agricultural background. Famed for its historical banana plantations and its thriving marine ecosystems, it’s the perfect getaway for couples and families who are looking for a relaxing holiday with plenty of sightseeing options.
This small city has a surprising variety of landmarks, including the nationally-famous Big Banana and Jetty Beach, which features antiquated wooden jetties that were once used in the area’s thriving timber trade. You can embrace Coffs’ welcoming, small-town ambience by visiting attractions like the Harbourside Markets and the Clog Barn, or get a taste of tourist hotspots like the amazing Forest Sky Pier and Dolphine Marine Conservation Park.
Despite the great sightseeing opportunities, Coffs Harbour’s greatest appeal lies in its plethora of national parks and conservation sites. From the cerulean waters of Solitary Islands Marine Park to the sprawling forests of Dorrigo National Park, you’ll be able to explore some of Australia’s most scenic areas in visitor-friendly environments that feature comfortable walking areas and plenty of amenities.
For beachgoers, there’s also a great selection of locations to choose from – the popular Coffs Harbour Beach, surf-friendly Digger Beach, tranquil Boambee Beach and remote Park Beach. And don’t worry, there’s something for the fishermen out there too. Muttonbird Island has on-shore fishing opportunities, as well as a beautiful nature reserve, whale-watching and a vibrant Indigenous Australian history, which you can learn about from the local Gumbaynggirr Aboriginal rangers.
