Celebrating Eco Coffs Coast

The Coffs Coast is the only place in NSW where the Great Dividing Range meets the ocean… home to a rich ecosystem including world-heritage National Parks, State Forests, Flora Reserves and the Solitary Islands Marine Park, the oldest of its kind in the state. The region also boasts sites of great significance to the traditional owners of this land, the Gumbaynggirr People.

In 2021 the Coffs Coast was globally recognised as an ECO Destination… celebrated for its diverse cultural community, committed to balancing sustainable practices with first-class, nature-based visitor experiences.

Now in 2023, our Green Destination Top 100 story acknowledges and celebrates the remarkable achievement of the local Gumbaynggirr people and community behind Two Path Strong as leaders in language revival and education through award-winning sustainable tourism initiatives.

Awarded by Ecotourism Australia, Coffs Coast’s ECO Destination certification is more than a certificate. For visitors, it’s a green tick of approval, giving peace of mind that your Coffs Coast holiday experience is good for you, and good for our environment too. It certifies sustainability, cultural authenticity, and support for the local community.
