This is a personal and independent website/blog with ideas and suggestions for things to do in and around Coffs Harbour (NSW) on the East Coast of Australia.

All stories are written by Micky Stuivenberg. I only write about activities and attractions that I have personally experienced so I can give you honest reviews and first-hand impressions.

Ways to find activities & attractions you’re interested in:

  • Scroll down the homepage for the most recent reviews.
  • Narrow it down to a main category (OUTDOOR — INDOOR — FREE activities).
  • Pick a specific topic from the tag cloud in the sidebar on the right.

Enjoy your discovery of Coffs Harbour activities. If there’s a blog post you really like, please use the social media buttons to share it with your friends. Thanks!

Jetty Strip of Restaurants & Cafés, Coffs Harbour

One of the most popular ‘eat streets’ in Coffs Harbour is what the locals call the ‘Jetty Strip’. What makes it so popular is the wide variety of restaurants and cafés to choose from and the laid-back vibe due to its proximity to the beach and harbour. There are so many choices that you can just go there and make a last-minute decision what and where you want to eat.

Below is a complete list of all the eateries along and close to the Coffs Harbour Jetty Strip of restaurants. I’ve listed each of their specialties, their phone numbers and a link to their website, if they have one, or Facebook page. There are more than 20 cafés and restaurants all together in the one area.

Sydney to Coffs Harbour – Flights, Train, Coach, Car

This post gives people who want to travel from Sydney to Coffs Harbour a quick overview of their travel options.

I’ll go over the various ways to get to Coffs Harbour from Sydney – by car, bus, coach via the Pacific Highway; by plane with Virgin Australia, Tiger Airways or Qantas flights; or by train with Countrylink.

LATEST UPDATE: All prices are as found online on 25 March 2013 and may vary. They apply when pre-purchased, and are for one-way travel.

Personally, I prefer flying. It’s quick and you can get good deals on air tickets if you keep an eye out for sales, that seem to be on almost all the time. I subscribe to Virgin Australia V-mail and Qantas Red as well as Tiger Latest Deals email newsletters that alert me when there’s a sale on.

New website about Coffs Harbour attractions and activities

I live in Coffs Harbour and I love it. I also write web content for a living. I’ve decided to start a website in blog format to write about life in Coffs Harbour and all the great things you can do there.

I’ve only put this site up today (5 Jan 09) so there’s nothing much there yet, but I will be adding lots of content over the next weeks, months and hopefully years.

There’s so much to do in and around Coffs Harbour that nobody around here (or visiting here) should ever have any excuse to say “I’m bored”!

So bear with me while I populate this website with ideas for activities and postings about my own (mostly outdoor) experiences. If you want to be kept up to date with new posts, subscribe to my RSS feed!
