Oh where to next ?
Coffs Harbour is a wonderful holiday destination, there is plenty to see and do. It’s famous for its beautiful beaches and the Big Banana monument and amusement park. In the waters off Coffs Harbour Marina is the Solitary Islands Marine Park, home to abundant wildlife, seasonal whales and coral reefs. Just east is the Muttonbird Island Nature Reserve, with its large population of wedge-tailed shearwater birds and learning centre.
Things to see and do...
Forest Sky Pier, Sealy Lookout
Visit the Sealy Look, it is just a short drive off the Pacific Highway from Coffs Harbour.
The Sealy Lookout sits within a flora reserve in Orara East State Forest and it is part of the amazing state Forests of the Coffs Coast.
It is only a 10 minute drive from Coffs Harbour, up through banana plantations to reach the lookout, it has easy vehicles access during daylight hours but not very well lit at night.
