Responsible Tourism

There are so many ways to dive into nature on the Coffs Coast. If you love picnicking on a spectacular headland, wading in crystal clear creeks in the rainforest, learning to surf on an uncrowded beach, or challenging yourself on a downhill mountain bike trail – it’s all here!

The Coffs Coast is geographically unique, being the only place in NSW where the Great Dividing Range meets the Pacific Ocean.

The region is also home to Indigenous cultural sites of great significance to the Gumbaynggirr people, is plentiful in nature reserves, and rich in flora and fauna. 

It is vital that we protect the natural resources of the Coffs Coast through responsible tourism and uphold the important cultural values of the custodians of this land. This enables our destination, communities, environments and values to thrive long-term.

As you explore the beautiful corners of the Coffs Coast, please tread lightly with an awareness of the fragility of our natural environment. And from the forests to the ocean, be mindful of conservation and preservation so that the many pristine places we share with you remain intact for generations to come.
