Coffs Harbour is the perfect destination for nature lovers. Located on the mid North Coast of New South Wales, this beautiful city has a population of over 70,000 and is home to some of New South Wales’ most stunning beaches for relaxing and surfing, including Moonee beach and Emerald beach.
This city offers a range of exciting activities for family members of every age, including the famous Big Banana monument and amusement park, the Dolphin Marine Magic rescue and rehabilitation centre and the Solitary Islands Aquarium. Just a 10-minute drive from Coffs Harbour is the family friendly Forest Sky Pier at Sealy Lookout, which sits within a flora reserve in Orara East State Forest.
Nature lovers can enjoy the Solitary Islands Marine Park, home to abundant wildlife, seasonal whales and coral reefs. Just east is the Muttonbird Island Nature Reserve, with its large population of wedge-tailed shearwater birds and learning centre. The North Coast Regional Botanic Gardens has 20 hectares of botanical gardens and is in a centrally located spot.
Coffs Harbour is also located on the Waterfall Way route, which was recently voted as one of the best scenic drives in NSW. The drive passes through lush rainforest and woodland and past the lofty lookout platforms at Ebor Falls, Dangar Falls and Wollomombi Falls. Coffs Harbour is also a short 15-minute drive away from Sawtell, a picturesque coastal village and the town of Bellingen with its lush green farm paddocks.
