We’re looking forward to welcoming you back to the Coffs Coast when travel restrictions ease off…. but for now we want to help you dream, plan and connect with your favourite holiday destination.

Maybe you’ve been thinking about connecting with your family and friends, swimming and playing on a beautiful beach or walking through lush rainforest, listening to the sounds of birds and waterfalls. Or maybe you’ve been anticipating doing something you’ve always wanted to do – something adventurous, challenging or just really, really remarkable.

As the Coffs Coast isn’t open to all holidaymakers, now is a great time for us to share some of the magic places, people and experiences that allows you to creates your unforgettable ‘bucket list’ here on the Coffs Coast.

IMAGINE THIS…

» Pick up your wallet and a water bottle and set off on a four-day walk that takes you along beaches, through littoral rainforests, and across headlands where kangaroos laze in the sun. Discover amazing stops to be entertained, fed and accommodated. You’re on the Solitary Islands Coastal Walk – one of the most spectacular coastal walks in Australia. Perfect for all levels of fitness, and you can easily walk shorter sections. Yes, maybe we exaggerate… you might need a change of clothes and a toothbrush as well.

» Escape the hustle and bustle of city streets and venture into the World Heritage-listed Gondwana Rainforest in Dorrigo, just a short drive from the coast. Take in awe-inspiring waterfalls, standing alongside 600-year-old trees. Delight in the colourful flora and interesting bird calls as you explore the cool, shaded walking tracks. Our favourite is the Wonga Walk but we’ll let you decide for yourself. This is a place to re-energise, re-ground and re-charge, surrounded by the magnificent breadth of nature.

» You’re standing on the beach, your heart pumping, feeling totally blissed out, you’ve just landed! You look to the waves, then back up at the sky, and realise “I can fly”! It’s the best feeling on earth. Jumping from 15,000 ft, your view of over 300kms of pristine coastline and the grandeur of the Great Dividing Range will take your breath away before you land on one of the Solitary Island Marine Park’s gorgeous beaches. Boldly leap with Coffs Skydivers – they love skydiving, and they love life! The gift you will find here is a connection to your fun side, the courageous and connected you, who can achieve anything. Skydiving may just change your life.

» Jetty Dive schedules tours to Swim with the Humpback Whales during August and September. The adventure begins within minutes of leaving the harbour. Relish the opportunity to idle quietly along a journey with these gentle, magestic creatures. Peacefully drifting along with the ocean current, expectations are high, but the rhythm of the ocean keeps excitement calm on ‘Wildfin’, Jetty Dive’s 12-metre charter boat. Soon, the quiet is broken by the familiar blow of a lone humpback whale surfacing nearby. Casting an eye on the horizon of the pristine Pacific Ocean, the tell-tale sprays of migratory whales signals their arrival to the Coffs Coast. The whales have arrived. TICK!
