Home to beautiful beaches, lush rainforest, and the iconic big banana, Coffs Harbour lies at the heart of the Coffs Coast, a sensational slice of paradise nestled between Sydney and Brisbane. This vibrant destination combines laid-back seaside vibes with the exciting activities, restaurants, and shopping that you would expect in a thriving city.

Several idyllic beaches make up the stunning coastline that lines Coffs Harbour. Relax and unwind on the golden sand, and enjoy a barbeque or picnic on the Jetty Beach foreshore. This is also the location of the Harbourside Market, held every Sunday, featuring live music and a vast array of unique products. Snorkelling and fishing are popular activities at Jetty Beach, due to the range of marine life.

Solitary Islands Marine Park extends north from Coffs Harbour along 75KM of coastline and offers diverse habitats housing many species of marine life. Get closer to the corals and fish by snorkelling, diving or sailing. Dolphins and whales can also be spotted here.

Alternatively take to the skies at Treetop Adventure Park, where you can fly through the forest on zip lines and suspension bridges.

Learn more about local wildlife at Dolphin Marine Magic, where you can meet sea lions, sharks, penguins, dolphins and more. Solitary islands Aquarium also offers the chance to get close and personal to marine life, whilst Coffs Harbour Butterfly House allows you to walk amongst butterflies.
