Mention Coffs Harbour and most Australians will link it with Hollywood film star Russell Crowe. However Coffs - as it is locally known - is much more than that! Most famous for the giant man-made Big Banana at the northern end of town, Coffs Harbour is one of the largest regional cities in NSW. Golden beaches, lush green rain forests, world-class quality accommodation and a multitude of fantastic attractions make this the ideal setting for a great holiday.

Coffs Harbour is a contemporary city that doubles as a major coastal resort town. It is bordered on one side by the beautiful white beaches of the holiday coast and on the other by the banana plantations, which cascade down the hills from the hinterland. Coffs Harbour is one of the biggest tourist destinations in the state outside of Sydney.

The area's many beaches make for perfect holidaying territory with surfing, fishing, patrolled safe swimming, beach-side picnics and barbecues. The town is ideal for families, which frequent the city during the holiday periods eager to enjoy the glorious subtropical laziness that lingers over it.

However laid back and resort-like Coffs Harbour appears, it still is able to offer all the necessary amenities of a typical city. The town centre is great for city-standard shopping, dining and is home to many recreational clubs and nightspots.
