Holiday To Coffs Harbour

Are you fantastic at chilling out at the beach and having fun in the sun? Well, we know a cool coastal destination that’s sure to keep up: Go bananas on a Coffs Harbour holiday!
Located on the lush Banana Coast, just 390 km south of Brisbane, Coffs Harbour is nothing to sneeze at. The harbour residents love their city, and you’ll realise that real quick at the gorgeous nature preserves, local markets and quirky cafes. Make new friends at an after-dark market or be the master of your own destiny—er, floatation device—with a kayak tour of the Tasman Sea. Ready to make a splash? Get in on some sweet Coffs Harbour holiday deals and get going!

Things to Do in Coffs Harbour

Coffs Harbour holidays have a mantra: “Go big or go home”. At least, that’s the case when it comes to The Big Banana Fun Park. Back in 1964 this giant wooden piece of fruit started out as the world’s largest banana structure, and over the years it has become a full-blown theme park. Yeah, it’s totally a thing.

If you savour the smaller things in life, then stomp on over to Clog Barn, complete with a model Dutch village, delicious pastries and handmade wooden shoes. It’s a little piece of the Netherlands in New South Wales. Next up, trade your new clogs for thongs and take a towel out to Coffs Harbour Beach. For an even glow, remember to flip every 15 minutes. Speaking of flipping, you won’t be far from fellow sea creatures turning tricks at Dolphin Marine Magic—an animal rescue and activity centre in Jetty Park.

Tired of all the sea life? Landlubbers will get their kicks on holidays in Coffs Harbour too! Hop in one of Wotif’s Coffs Harbour car hire options and drive west to one of the many forests surrounding the city. Dorrigo National Park is an easy 54-km drive from the harbour, so take a hike! Just make sure you save some time for a shopping spree…

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

For a shopping experience that is distinctly Coffs, hustle over to Jetty Beach for the Harbourside Markets. They’re part flea market, part music festival and part foodie haven, with a helping of fresh produce for good measure. Harbour Drive is also lined with shops to take care of your holiday-making needs, from sunscreen at the chemist to a bridal boutique.

If relaxing on the beach makes you hungry, you’re in the right place. As with much of New South Wales, the cuisine options in Coffs Harbour are international and modern. You’ll find loads of restaurants south of Coffs Harbour Creek along Pacific Highway, and a few sprinkled across the waterfront.

When night falls, you can just keep shopping and eating at the Twilight Food Market—a local gathering place where you can meet up with locals and stuff your face. Nothing brings a community together like grazing at the park and moseying over to the beach for a bonfire and friendly chatter!
