Wet Weather Ideas

For families and holiday makers searching for something to entertain the kids, or even yourself, here are some great ideas for rainy days on the Coffs Coast.

For wet weather fun for the kids, you can’t go past The Big Banana Fun Park, with ice skating, laser tag, 4D simulator rides, giant indoor slides and indoor fun zone. Cuddle a snake at Steve McEwans Reptile World or join a conservation tour at Coffs Coast Wildlife Sanctuary and feed the fairy penguins and turtles. See a clog-making demonstration and miniature Dutch village at The Clog Barn, get up close with butterflies at The Coffs Harbour Butterfly House, try a spot of archery at Sherwood Archery indoor centre, or for the littlies, there is loads of fun at The Playhouse with jungle gyms and so much more.

Adults can enjoy a tour of the Carobana factory with lots of yummy treats to purchase, go ten-pin bowling at iPlay, enjoy the many arts and crafts at one of our many galleries or specialty artisans or treat themselves to a pampering at our lovely day spas. There are several great shopping precincts where you can spend a day browsing, buying or relaxing with a coffee, or immerse yourself in the rich culture and heritage of the area at the Sikh Heritage Museum at Woolgoolga and Yarrawarra Cultural Centre at Corindi Beach.

There’s something for everyone at Yarrila Arts and Museum (YAM), a contemporary cultural hub offering a diverse array of local, regional, and curated displays spanning art, social history, and natural heritage. In addition, YAM’s digital exhibition area invites groundbreaking digital art challenging the boundaries of storytelling and artistic expression.

With so much to see and do you won’t even notice it is raining!
