A city feel with beach vibes and luxury accommodation in Coffs Harbour

It might be best known for the Big Banana, but there are plenty of other reasons to visit Coffs Harbour on the North Coast of NSW. Along with the scenic landscape and beaches, visitors can expect a vibrant city centre filled with restaurants, cafes, bars and boutiques.

Coffs Harbour is one of the stops along the legendary Pacific Coast Drive. This route stretches north from Sydney and winds along some of the most spectacular scenery North Coast NSW has in its arsenal. Even though Coffs Harbour is the largest hub along the North Coast, there is nary a high-rise or skyscraper in sight. That's good news for visitors who like their Coffs Harbour accommodation with a side of beach or ocean views.

On the subject of Coffs Harbour's beaches, travellers can take their pick from the line-up of gorgeous sandy stretches. Jetty Beach is perfect for families with young children; the protected strip offers opportunity aplenty for kids to splash about in the calm waters. Find Jetty Beach a short walk away from Coffs Harbour marina, home to the vibrant Sunday markets. Visitors looking for a more challenging break can head to Parks Beach, which is popular with surfers and more experienced water-goers.

Coffs Harbour is perched on the edge of the Solitary Islands Marine Park, a protected area that’s home to more than 550 species of reef fish and 90 species of coral, as well as species like whales, turtles and grey nurse sharks. Further afield, make time for a day trip to the World Heritage-listed Dorrigo National Park. Just an hour from Coffs Harbour, you can enjoy walks through the ancient rainforest, waterfalls and birdwatching.

Each September, Coffs Harbour hosts the International Buskers and Comedy Festival, where dozens of acts from Australia and around the world take to the stage in the city centre.

Thanks to the city's size, there are a variety of Coffs Harbour accommodation options. Splash out on a magnificent oceanfront villa to stay in luxurious style; head for the hills with a hinterland farm stay; have everything at your fingertips by booking a resort room; or hark back to old-school beach holidays with a simple, well-equipped house.
