Central Coast

Central Coast to Coffs Harbour

Perhaps most famous for its resident bottlenose dolphins, Port Stephens is also the favoured setting for a multitude of water sports and outdoor activities.

Further north at Port Macquarie, you can relax on uncrowded patrolled beaches, cruise serene rivers, see migrating whales and pods of dolphins, plus enjoy a good range of accommodation, markets, galleries and world-class wineries.

Coffs Harbour is a harbourside haven of serene beauty edged by rugged mountain ranges. It is bursting with beautiful beaches, World Heritage rainforests and bountiful marine life.
