Coffs Harbour Holidays Overview
Coffs Harbour sits on the Great Dividing Range on the Australian East Coast. Golden beaches, whale watching, arts and crafts markets and nature walking trails will provide entertainment for the whole family. Coffs Harbour has it all!
Originally the home of the Gumbaynggirr people, they settled I the area due to the excellent climate and wealth of resources. In 1847, Captain John Korff shelted in the bay from a storm and was impressed with the natural protection to shipping from the headlands. He named the harbour area ‘Korffs Harbour’ and the town eventually became called Coffs Harbour when gazetted in 1861.
Nestled between forested hills and at the edge of sparkling blue waters, Coffs Harbour is a picturesque slice of heaven. Beyond the beaches lies ‘The Solitary Islands’ named by Captain James Cook when he sailed past the islands in May of 1770.
