Out and about in Coffs Harbour

Go camping in Coffs Harbour and you’ll be smack-bang in the middle of the stunning North Coast NSW, 5.5 hours from Sydney and 4.5 hours from Brisbane. While it’s best known as the birthplace of the first of Australia’s “bigs”, the Big Banana, don’t let that overshadow everything else Coffs has going for it. With incredible beaches and marine sanctuaries to the east, and lush rainforests to the west, there’s no shortage of nature-based adventures to be had.

Stroll, surf, snorkel and swim the days away at Diggers Beach, tucked between rocky headlands, or discover a secluded beach with a day trip into Bongil Bongil National Park. Get up close and personal with dolphins and seals at the famous porpoise sanctuary. Witness marine life in the wild with a whale watching cruise or dive trip to the Solitary Islands. Watch and learn about local shearwater birds at the Muttonbird Island Nature Reserve. For an immersive experience of the region’s Indigenous community, walk the 400m Gumgali Track which interprets a Gumbayggirr Dreaming story before opening up to views from the Korora lookout.

To the west, the scenery changes as the dense prehistoric rainforest and mountains close in. From Dorrigo to Nymboi-Binderay National Park, the area is home to NSW’s best waterfalls, camping areas and day hikes. The scenic Waterwall Way drive showcases this spectacular landscape, with Crystal Shower Falls and Dangar Falls offering up some mind-blowing photo opps. For exceptional canopy views with pram and wheel-chair access (less than 30 minutes from town), drive through fields of banana trees to the Forest Sky Pier. 

While there’s a lot of ground to cover, keep some time up your sleeve to check out the Clog Barn, the North Coast Regional Botanic Gardens and of course the Big Banana Fun Park. Coff Harbour’s most recognisable landmark is a holiday destination in its own right – boasting the biggest waterpark between Sydney and Brisbane, mini golf, laser tag, plantation experiences, fruity treats and tonnes more.

Explore Coffs Harbour Like a Local

Coffs Harbour is one of those destinations that is slowly becoming a 4wd and camping mecca. It’s where the Great Dividing Range meets the Pacific Ocean, leaving a small pocket of paradise lodged between the mountains and the sea.

Nymboi-Binderay National Park: a local favourite

Thirty million years ago, an ancient volcano located near Dorrigo NSW gave an almighty push from the deepest realms of our great earth, and because of this Coffs locals have some great natural playgrounds to explore.
