About Coffs Harbour

Including tips for the best time to visit Coffs Harbour

Coffs Harbour is located on the northern coast of New South Wales, Australia. This sunny town offers pristine beaches, long coastlines and a good number of cafes, galleries and amusement parks. Known for its thriving banana industry, Coffs Harbour is a leading exporter of the fruit in the region.

The crowning jewel of Coffs Harbour is its sandy beaches and azure waters. Be it the family-friendly Jetty Beach or the surfing spot of Diggers Beach, this Australian city has something for every traveller. Emerald Beach is another place you can go to if you wish to witness picturesque views of the shores or catch a glimpse of a pod of dolphins.

During your Coffs Harbour trip, you'll never run out of things to do. If you wish to watch shoals of fish coming to the shallow waters for food, stop at the sanctuary of Aquascene. Here, you can watch a variety of fish up close and even feed them right from your hand.

Your Coffs Harbour trip is incomplete without a stop at The Big Banana. This fun amusement park is New South Wales' biggest water park offering a multitude of fun activities. There are giant slides, mini golfing areas, 4D ride simulators along with ice skating and laser tag.

Coffs Harbour is a great place for a holiday.

September 22, 2022

Coffs Harbour is a great place for a holiday. We enjoyed the Dolphin display, the many cafes and restaurants and the ease of getting around in Coffs Harbour. There are great walks around the foreshore and beautiful beaches. The weather is usually glorious although we did have 2 days of heavy rain.

This was a one night trip for sport. I do this often. Sometimes I stay longer as there are great walks and swimming spots. One can enjoy a variety of dining experiences on Harbour Drive and the Jetty.

Coffs Harbour has all you need for a short break or a long holiday. Great beaches, whale & dolphin watching (if you look carefully!). Plenty of shopping opportunities as needed. Lots of eating opportunity. The locals are friendly and helpful, you just need to engage! Lots to do everyday, or just relax and enjoy the ozone. PS - don't miss the Botanic Gardens - peace, quiet and oxygen in the middle of town.

We were only there for one night but we ate at the Coffs Harbour Bowls Club and we found the food very good. The Coffs Harbour area seems to have a lot to recommend it as there are many scenic attractions, eating venues and sporting clubs in the vicin.ity

We easily filled four days with activities and exploring.

August 18, 2022

We easily filled four days with activities and exploring. So much to see and do, we didn't have any time to chill out like I thought we would (as it was raining most of the time). Treetops was awesome, even in the rain, as was the Big Banana and butterfly house. If we had more time I would have liked to explore the surrounding areas like the botanical gardens, Dorrigo and Bellingen on our way home.

I found Coffs Harbour to be a convenient place to stop off when on our trip to Queensland. There are a range of interesting restaurants available and some nice places such as Niigi Niigi (Sealy Lookout) in Orara East State Forest to visit.
