Local departures to Coffs Harbour
Coffs Harbour overview
Bananas (and a trend-setting Big Banana), beautiful beaches, national parks and lots of childhood memories. Many holidaymakers who once played on the beaches - and ate chocolate-covered bananas at the Big Banana - now seek cheap flights to Coffs Harbour for their own families.
The beaches, starting from the south are Boambee Beach, Jetty Beach (close to the marina) and Park Beach, the main beach on Ocean Parade. Should you tire of making sand castles, there are plenty of activities including scuba diving or surf rafting, fishing or whale watching or bush walking.
There is a boardwalk close to the jetty area and 19 hectares of lush, botanical gardens close by. Another Coffs Harbour institution is the Coffs Harbour Butterfly House, which is home to 400 live Australian butterflies.
Off the coast, Muttonbird Island, part of the Solitary Islands Marine Park, is popular with bird watchers, whale watchers and scuba divers.
