A Guide to a Long Weekend in Coffs Harbour

Looking for an awesome long weekend getaway? Look no further! Clear your calendar and pack your bags. It’s time for the ultimate long weekend getaway to Coffs Harbour. Nestled between Sydney and Brisbane along the sunny north coast of New South Wales, Coffs offers an enchanting blend of aquatic adventures, captivating wildlife, and scenic landscapes. With an enticing itinerary from sun-soaked beaches to lush rainforest expeditions, Coffs Harbour promises to deliver a memorable long weekend. So, let’s dive in and begin the journey to your perfect long weekend in Coffs Harbour!

Long Weekend in Coffs Harbour – Hit the Beaches

First things first, dive into the beach life at Coffs Harbour. Park Beach greets you with inviting waves and intriguing rock pools. It’s an ideal spot to start your aquatic adventures. Later, head over to Muttonbird Island Nature Reserve. Here, a boardwalk presents stunning views and wildlife sightings, including the indigenous Mutton birds nesting on the hillsides.

When Sunday rolls around, mix up your routine with a visit to the Harbourside Markets at Jetty Beach. After grabbing breakfast and browsing stalls, take a leisurely stroll on the jetty—you might even glimpse a turtle in the water!

Discover Dorrigo

Just an hour west, Dorrigo awaits with green canopies and waterfalls. Begin at the Rainforest Centre with a modest gold coin donation. Trek the Wonga Track, where lush scenery and waterfalls like Crystal Shower and Tristaina Falls will take your breath away. For a less challenging walk, the bird-filled Lyrebird Link trail offers a casual experience in nature.

Don’t miss out on Dangar Falls in Dorrigo town. Here, the thunderous splash of a 30-meter cascade is both a sight to behold and an invigorating swimming spot.

The Big Banana Fun Park

No long weekend in Coffs Harbour would be complete without a slice of iconic Coffs. So, snap a picture with the famed Big Banana and consider spending time at the Big Banana Fun Park. Rides and games galore will fill your day with laughter. Plus, there are boutique shops and the chance to indulge in a chocolate-dipped banana from the cafe.

Sky-High Views

Step away from the rush at Sky Forest Pier. This lookout offers spectacular coastal and mountainous views, and the best part is that it’s easily accessible. However, to avoid crowds, aim for early morning or late afternoon visits.

Enchanting Encounters at Butterfly House

Last on the list, wander into the whimsical world of the Coffs Harbour Butterfly House. Delight in the dance of hundreds of butterflies, get lost in a Wonderland maze and step back in prehistoric times with a dinosaur walk. It’s an enchanting conclusion to your long weekend.
