COFFS HARBOUR – or “Coffs’’ – is beautifully set at a point where the mountains of the Great Dividing Range fall into the South Pacific Ocean, and boasts glorious expanses of white sand to the north. The town itself, though far less pretty, is a lot of fun, with tons of outdoor activities. Offshore, the Solitary Islands are notable for diving, with fringing coral reefs and a plethora of fish, while migrating whales pass by between late May and late November.
