With our wonderful climate and picturesque terrain, it’s little wonder that locals and visitors alike enjoy spending time outdoors at Coffs Harbour.
Apart from the wide expanse of Park Beach right across the road from the Tahitian, there are plenty of places to walk or ride a bike, most of it fairly flat so it’s not too challenging for those who might be more accustomed to a sedentary lifestyle!
Muttonbird Island Nature Reserve is easy to get to and a great place to explore and for bird-watching and even just checking out the marina and walking out along the famous jetty is a quintessential Coffs Harbour experience.
There’s also the Coffs Creek Walk, which follows the tidal mangrove-lined creek and has boardwalks over the tricky bits. It’s a great way to fit in a bit of bushwalking when going from the CBD to the marina, or vice versa.
If you’ve got more time and more energy, it might be worth looking into the Solitary Islands Coastal Walk – or at least part thereof.
And just a 10 minute drive out of town is Bruxner Park Flora Reserve with lots of signposted walking trails through the rainforest and the brilliant vantage point Sealy Lookout, which offers stunning views over Coffs Harbour from 310 metres above sea level.
