Southern Beaches

In the Coffs Coast region of the Southern Beaches, the villages of Sawtell, Boambee, Toormina, and Bonville are only a stone’s throw from Coffs Harbour and offer something for everyone.

Nature lovers can immerse themselves in the pristine estuary ecosystems, long stretches of coastline, and breathtaking national parks. The adventure enthusiast can go trail riding, kayaking or surfing. For those wishing to relax, there are plenty of waterside picnic spots to while away the days.

Join a C-Change Sunset Eco-Tour and experience pristine waterways where you learn everything there is to know about local wildlife, the water and the Aboriginal history of the area.

Need some retail therapy? There’s a choice of boutique and antique shops, and shopping centres for everything in between. Be spoiled by the variety of restaurants and some of the best coffee on the coast. There’s something to suit every taste.

Drop in for a beer and bar snacks or graze over share plates with a cocktail in hand at Bar Que Sera located on the fig
tree-lined street of First Avenue, Sawtell. Large seasonal plates and a wine list that celebrates quality independent producers complement the shiny green subway tiles, timber flooring and architectural lighting of this relaxed bar and restaurant.

Close by Bongil Bongil National Park has plenty to offer, including wild beaches, sweeping coastal views and peaceful streams.  The park is also a regional favourite for mountain bike adventures and is also home to a large population of koalas. Pack a hamper, switch off technology and spend the day exploring one of the many bushwalking trails that weave their way through the park.

From the vibrant beachside village of Sawtell to the natural beauty of Bonville, the southern beaches are a melting pot of activity and relaxation. The choice is yours.
