Information and attractions Accommodation

Introduction:

Coffs Harbour is located on a beautiful section of coastline between Grafton and Nambucca Heads.

The warm pleasant climate, glorious stretches of sandy beaches and the backdrop of the forested mountains which descend down to the coast make Coffs Harbour an appealing destination for holidaymakers, daytrippers and retirees.

The city's harbour is the base for regional fishing fleets, while banana plantations dot the inland foothills.

A vibrant shopping district awaits visitors, situated adjacent to the Pacific Highway and along Harbour Drive, while at the northern gateway to Coffs Harbour is Park Beach Plaza.
