    Things to do in Coffs Harbour

    Coffs Harbour is one of the best kept secrets on the NSW Mid North coast. Surrounded by spectacular rainforests this is where the mountains meet the sea and is one of the best water sport venues on the coast with quality surfing, kiteboarding, paddleboarding and kayaking available at all the pristine beaches. Whale watching in the winter months is amazing and fishing charters are available; in the summer months there is a large blueberry harvest and fruit picking work can be arranged through the hostel.
