About the Coffs Harbour region

Coffs Harbour is a paradise of attractions, from thrilling skydives and underwater adventures to dolphin shows and waterfront dining. Nearby you can walk above a rainforest canopy in a World Heritage wilderness.

The coastal city on the North Coast of NSW is at the southern edge of the Solitary Islands Marine Park. Jetty Dive has daily charters for scuba divers to the marine park, a haven for grey nurse sharks, turtles and whales in migrating season.

For fresh seafood, the Jetty Strip of restaurants at the bottom end of Harbour Drive attracts tourists and locals alike. Choose from more than 20 cafés and restaurants in one convenient location.

Meet Bucky and other dolphins at Dolphin Marine Magic, where you can get up close to the playful mammals and enjoy daily shows. The park also has a successful seal breeding program.

The city is well-known for its Big Banana, one of the oldest and most visited ‘big things’ in Australia. The yellow icon celebrates the region’s banana industry and you’ll discover plenty of fun activities at the Big Banana for the young and the young at heart.
