Welcome to Coffs Harbour

The jetty was built in 1892 to load cedar and other logs. Bananas were first grown in the area in the 1880s, and the industry reached its peak in the 1960s. These days tourism is the mainstay of the local economy. The town is split into three: the jetty area, the commercial centre and the beaches.

Coffs is located on Gumbaynggirr country and there are a few important sites here you can visit to learn about the cultures and traditions of the Gumbaynggirr people.
