Not only are you going to camp in spectacular surrounds with loads of wildlife and direct water frontage to Coffs Creek, but you’ll be in the perfect spot to enjoy the region’s best.

Here are ten ways to spend the day in Coffs Harbour.

Big Banana Fun Park

Coffs Harbour’s most famous attraction. But there’s more to this place than a giant piece of fruit. Think mini-golf, waterslides, plantation tours and even cheesemaking workshops.

Dorrigo National Park

Just one hour away from Coffs is Dorrigo National Park, home to World Heritage-listed rainforests, magnificent waterfall walks and birdwatching opportunities galore.

A good sport

Whether you’re a player, or just a professional spectator, Coffs is a sports-mad destination, hosting high-level competitions ranging from triathlons to ocean swims and even the World Rally.

Whale Watching

Coffs is ideal for witnessing the annual whale migration from May to November. Join a cruise from the Coffs Harbour Marina, or head to the Woolgoolga Headland for a land-based experience.

Walking and cycling

Pack your bike or your walking shoes; you’re going to be spoilt for choice at Coffs Harbour. Coastal, rainforest or hinterland - you’re bound to find a trail to suit your needs and fitness levels.



This gorgeous little village boasts stunning beaches, coastal national parks and heaps of funky cafes. Enjoy a meal on the main street under the enormous fig trees and drink in the ambience.

Sealy Lookout

Make your way to the Forest Sky Pier at Sealy Lookout and appreciate the astounding views of the Coffs Coast and surrounding mountain ranges. On a clear day you can see 100km to the south.

Let’s go shopping

Coffs is home to a range of markets, boutique laneway stores, speciality outlets, as well as all the big names you’d expect. You’re sure to find the perfect memento of your visit.

Coffs Harbour Butterfly House

Spend the day wandering amongst hundreds of live Australian butterflies in an indoor subtropical rainforest setting. There’s even a maze if you feel like getting a little bit lost!
