Travel Blogs from Coffs Harbour

Day Seventy Five: Bye Bye Byron

A travel blog entry by emmahannahmilla


So today we threw ourselves out of a plane. Hearts thumping in our chests. Wind rushing past our ears. Adrenaline soaring through our veins. The overwhelming fear that you're taking your life in your hands and defying the laws of nature. But what an exhilarating rebellion! Skydiving has got to be the single most thrilling thing we have ever done in …

Surfing and Paddle Boarding at Coffs Harbour

A travel blog entry by cornishsal


On the bus down to Coffs Harbour I happened to glance down into a river we were crossing just before MacLean and couldn't believe the sight that met my eyes - hundreds of huge jellyfish serenely floating along in the flow of the water! Not something I expected to see in a river! As we passed through MacLean I noticed every telegraph pole was …

A little Harbour Marina Jetty town, lovely

A travel blog entry by isabelle134


First, me very stupid. When booking my greyhound bus online for Coffs Harbour from Byron Bay, I get the message that this trip does not exist. Instead of thinking "further than the length of my nose";-) I took it for granted, and started to organise a very complicated trip, Greyhound to Grafton and then further with local transport. Fortunately, on …

The Big Banana and Other Stories - Coffs Harbour

A travel blog entry by suzieq88


Even though Mr You like the Party? recommended Coffs Harbour, it was a definite on the to-do list of places I wanted to visit on the East Coast anyways. Various people had mentioned it back home and I really wanted to go and visit, mainly to go and see The Big Banana! There are a few banana plantations in the area and for some reason, the people of …

Our time in coffs

A travel blog entry by cherrygreenacre

On our various method of transport to coffs we yet again came across more mentals, a man at a bus stop who would not stop talking to us and spitting his food all over the place, then a nutty aborigini woman on the bus and a weird smelly fat woman at the station! When we first arrived we got settled in and chilled out too tired to do anything! Next …

    Fantastic hostel - great location, wonderful staff, exceptionally comfy and clean rooms and facilities, AND you're able to hire surfboards, bodyboards, paddle boards and kayaks for free!! Amazing!
    Only negative I could find was that in a room of 6 people there were only 4 lockers available, but at least there were any!
    Would definitely stay again!!

    The hostel was perfect! Rooms clean and large, enough showers except when everybody came from "sunset kayaking" and wanted to shower all at the same time. Free boards and stuff to enjoy the water. A little outside the center (15 min walk) close to a lovely path (that leads to the city centre) along a river. I saw a kingfisher there fishing! The staff is very helpful, kitchen well organised, and there is even a little swimming pool ;-) And, free wifi!

    Great hostel inbetween town (15mins walk) and beach (10mins walk). Mini bus is waiting for you when you get off greyhound, even at 6.20am. Was able to checkin at 8am and get into bed, much appreciated after night coach. Sausage BBQ on Wed, $3, very social. Great small hostel. Clean and friendly. Free Canoes for river across the road! $5 bike hike. Excellent.
