16 Best Coffs Harbour Attractions Every Tourist Must See

Coffs Harbour is a coastal city in New South Wales, halfway between Brisbane and Newcastle. The place you must visit in Coffs Harbour is the Big Banana. An icon since 1964, the Banana started as a road side stall and has grown ever since. So, take a ‘selfie’ with the Big Banana, eat some bananas, and then go play. Go ice skating, or tobogganing, play mini golf, laser tag or get wet in the water park.

Alternatively, take a day trip out to Bellinger River or Dorrigo National Park. Dorrigo is a structured park with a lot to offer, with a number of tracks and walkways. Bellinger River National Park does not have marked walkways and is recommended for experienced hikers. To find the Orara Escarpment 4 WD touring route, you need to go to Bindarri National Park. For a visit to Celtic country, visit Glen Innes in the Highlands and see Australia’s Standing Stones.
