“Our favourite beach – that’s a hard decision, they are all beautiful.”

It’s easy to experience an endless summer at Coffs Coast Regional Park. Lose yourself in its string of pristine beaches which together offer everything from unbeatable surf and safe swimming to picnic areas and children’s playgrounds.

Explore undulating dunes, rainforest pockets, tranquil lakes, inviting parklands and charming coastal towns along the coastal walk, taking in sweeping views of Solitary Islands Marine Park. Experience the annual whale migration from June to November. Find the perfect whale watching vantage point and plan your next coastal adventure on the Wild About Whales website.

Take your pick of outdoor activities – either in the water or along the waterfront. Go fishing, birdwatching or bodyboarding, take your dog for a walk, or find the perfect picnic spot for a memorable family barbecue.

Highlights
 

Why you should visit

Coffs Coast Regional Park is a special place, here are just some of the reasons why:

Whale watchers
Coffs Coast Regional Park is a fantastic place to enjoy watching these majestic creatures on their long coastal journey. Look-At-Me-Now Headland near Emerald Beach is a great vantage point, but locals agree Woolgoolga Headland is your best bet for glimpsing humpbacks. In fact, it’s also known as ‘Whale Watch Headland’. Plan a trip between June and October to see this inspiring sight.

Life’s a beach
Golden beaches are the park’s premier attraction. Here, everything revolves around the water – whether you’re swimming and surfing in it, or walking and fishing beside it. Spend your days discovering the headland walking tracks, boat ramps, parklands and playgrounds. And no matter where you go, you’re bound to find a perfect spot for a beachside picnic.

Fun for Fido
There are plenty of dog-friendly areas at Coffs Coast Regional Park – just another of its popular features. Take your dog for a walk along one of the coastal paths, plus, there are several beaches with leash-free zones, meaning your pooch can zip about and enjoy the sand and sea as much as you do. The leash-free area around Corindi and Pipeclay beaches is a local favourite – be sure to check the zoning signs and don’t forget the tennis ball.
