Things To Do In Coffs Harbour Local Area
World Heritage rainforests, golden beaches and the wonders of the Solitary Islands Marine Park are all within easy reach during your stay at the Sanctuary Resort, Coffs Harbour.
With an abundance of warm sunny days the Coffs Coast area has some of the best weather in Australia. It is just the place to do as much or as little as you like. Explore hidden valleys and meandering rivers, visit a gold mine or take a steam train ride in the beautiful hinterland area of Coffs Harbour.
From May to November each year Coffs Harbour hosts the magnificent Humpback Whales on their annual migration with the shallow waters around the harbour creating a natural haven for the whales to escape their predators.
Cruises leave from the Coffs Harbour Marina that take in the wonders of the Solitary Islands Marine Park. The Marine Park has currents from the Great Barrier Reef and is home to a mixture of both tropical and southern marine life. There are numerous dive sites around the islands and each offers a diverse range of ocean life including morays, blue damsels, kingfish and green turtles.
A short drive from Coffs Harbour along the tranquil Waterfall Way is Bellingen with its beautifully restored heritage buildings and a myriad of interesting shops and cafes. A little further along the Waterfall Way the road climbs through rainforest and waterfalls to Dorrigo with its fresh mountain air and World Heritage National Park.
A little closer to Coffs Harbour is the charming seaside village of Sawtell with its main street lined with restaurants, cafes and magnificent old fig trees that offer shade in the warm summer months.
If you don't feel like travelling Coffs Harbour is brimming with attractions. Take a stroll along the restored Jetty and enjoy seafood from the Fisherman’s Co-op or wander across the break wall to Mutton-bird Island which is home to a large colony of Wedge tailed Shearwaters (Mutton-birds).
Browse the local art galleries especially the unique Bunker Cartoon Gallery which is housed in a World War II bunker and is home to the largest collection of cartoons in the country.
Enjoy the aquatic animal antics at the Pet Porpoise Pool with the dolphin and seal shows or visit the nearby Clog Barn to see clog making demonstrations and a walk through a miniature Dutch village.
The Big Banana Fun Park is the biggest Water Park between Sydney and the Gold Coast. A unique piece of paradise and an idyllic holiday destination.
