Coffs Harbour, where the mountains meet the sea, is the largest resort centre on Australia's Holiday Coast.

Natural, yet invigorating, dynamic yet relaxed, Coffs Harbour is halfway between Sydney and Brisbane.

Set in a magnificent sub-tropical environment featuring long stretches of uncluttered golden beaches, with a backdrop of lush rainforests, Coffs Coast is the perfect setting for the perfect holiday.

Coffs Harbour with its sub tropical climate boasts widely differing landscapes from the magnificent rainforests of the Dorrigo escarpment to a coastline with many golden beaches.

It is the base for every imaginable type of adventure activity including white water rafting on the Nymboida River, beach, river and deep sea fishing, four wheel drive adventure safaris and mountain bike riding.

World Heritage rainforests with spectacular views, walking trails, waterfalls and four wheel drive tracks are accessible from Dorrigo .

The Solitary Islands Marine reserve, just off the shores of Coffs Harbour, has a unique mixture of marine life that would be matched by few locations in Australia, making it a fantastic place for scuba diving and snorkelling.

If you like to be busy you can : shop for arts and crafts, golf, take a spin in a go-kart, slip down a water-slide, learn to surf, shake hands with a dolphin, tandem sky dive, bite a banana, meet flowers in the Botanical Gardens and furry friends at the Zoo.

Coffs Harbour, is a popular family destination for many reasons but one in particular : the sub-tropical climate is rated by the CSIRO as the best weather in Australia. Average summer temperatures hover around 26C while average winter temperatures are a pleasant 18C.
