Coffs Harbour Travel Guide

Coffs Harbour can be found between Brisbane and Sydney on the New South Wales coast. The population is growing quickly as people are attracted from the big cities to the more peaceful, rural location. 

Coffs Harbour has many attractive beaches. The patrolled Park Beach and the sheltered Jetty Beach are both good bases for swimming.  One of the most famous landmarks in Coffs Harbour is the Big Banana, put up to celebrate the region’s famous banana industry. Here you can find a theme park and a theatre explaining the banana industry.  Although small, Coff Harbour is a multicultural destination with a substantial Sikh community in Woolgoolga, where you can find the beautiful Sikh Temple. 

There are many national parks, reserves and gardens in Coffs Harbour. The Botanic Gardens in the centre of Coff feature a charming miniature botanic garden. You can visit the Rainforest Centre in the Dorrigo National Park before admiring the view from the skywalk in the canopy. You can also visit the Bongil Bongil National Park, south of Sawtell, and the Cascade National Park near Dorrigo. 

There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the wildlife in Coff Harbour. Muttonbird Island is a good post for whale watching. Turtles, dolphins and whales can be watched from the Solitary Islands, south of the Great Barrier Reef. At the Pet Porpoise Pool you can get close up and touch dolphins and seals, and you can also watch the animal shows at Coffs Harbour zoo.
