Coffs Harbour

Coffs Harbour is a city on the north coast of New South Wales. It’s known for its beaches and the Big Banana monument and amusement park. In the waters off Coffs Harbour Marina is the Solitary Islands Marine Park, home to abundant wildlife, seasonal whales and coral reefs. Just east is the Muttonbird Island Nature Reserve, with its large population of wedge-tailed shearwater birds and learning centre.  There are gorgeous beaches like Jetty Beach and you can enjoy spectacular views at Sealy Lookout. The wheelchair-accessible platform extends out over emerald rainforest escarpment. The vistas from Muttonbird Island are breathtaking. The harbour breakwater bridges the nature reserve where wedge-tailed shearwaters nest.  With views of the Solitary Islands Marine Park, the Eastern Side lookout on the island is a top vantage point for whale watching. Explore underwater worlds with Jetty Dive or cruise to see whales between May and November. Coffs Harbour is also one of the only places in the world where you can swim with humpback whales.
