The days of leaving your pet behind while you go on holiday are over. Exploring with furry friends in tow has never been easier! Discover an ever-growing list of Coffs Coast attractions, accommodation options, beaches, parks and cafes for you and your animals to enjoy.
Your pooch will be in heaven on one of the many stunning beaches and reserves. Certain areas are designated for dogs on leads while in others, dogs are allowed off-lead, as long as they are under direct supervision. Run, walk or play with your dog on the golden sand at Arrawarra Beach in the north, Sawtell Beach a little further south, Korora Beach and Sapphire Beach in the centre and many others in between. Be sure to check the Coffs Harbour City Council website for detailed maps of dog friendly areas.
If your pup is especially energetic, why not grab its leash, hop on a bike and explore the Coffs Creek and Harbour Loop together. The 12km to 24km trail is a mix of road, bike path, dirt and boardwalks and will take you through a variety of landscapes including wetlands, beaches and reserves.
Check-in to the nearby Reflections Holiday Parks Moonee Beach, one of the many contemporary pet-friendly accommodation options on offer. Surrounded by the tranquil Moonee Creek, the Moonee Beach Reserve and Green Bluff headland, you’ll struggle to decide on what to do first. Swimming, surfing, boating and bushwalking top the list in this nature lover’s paradise. Dogs on leashes can have fun in the sun too!
From here, head a little further west to the Bruxner Park Flora Reserve in the Orara East State Forest and you’ll find the magnificent Sealy Lookout, home to the award-winning Forest Sky Pier. Humans aren’t the only ones who enjoy stunning views up and down the Coffs Coast. Your furry friend is encouraged to take in the expansive vista as well. Don’t forget to pick up after your pet!
