About Coffs Harbour

Coffs Harbour, on the North Coast, is packed with family-friendly attractions including beaches, water sports, adventure sports, restaurants and cafes. The city also has a wide choice of accommodation, from motels to glossy resorts and small, exclusive boutique retreats.

The steep hillsides around the town are the perfect backdrop to a major North Coast attraction - the Big Banana, one of the oldest, and most visited, "big things" in Australia. But there's more to this attraction than just bananas. The whole family will love the toboggan ride, laser tag arena, ice-skating rink, inflatable waterpark, candy-making kitchen, nursery and gift shop with quirky souvenirs.

Other great local attractions include Dolphin Marine Magic which has daily seal and dolphin shows, the Butterfly House and the Muttonbird Island Nature Reserve.
