Coffs Harbour is pretty much right in the middle of the NSW coast, about 6 hours drive from both Sydney and Brisbane. A favourite with families, it's a large enough coastal town to offer a range of accommodations from camping to 5-star luxury, as well as plenty of attractions and entertainment to keep busy kids active. Here is what's happening in Coffs Harbour this Winter and Spring.
