Coffs Harbour is a city on the north coast of New South Wales, Australia. It’s known for its 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. Coffs Harbour owes its name to John Korff, who named the area Korff’s Harbour when he was forced to take shelter from a storm in the area in 1847.  The name was accidentally changed by the surveyor for the crown when he reserved land in the area during 1861

The Coffs Harbour Jetty is an historically important timber wharf where coastal shipping once moved the timber from the hinterland. The jetty area is the subject of current planning by Council and consultants to develop a cultural precinct and rejuvenated residential area.

Nearby, the Solitary Islands Marine Park preserves a diverse underwater ecosystem that mirrors the terrestrial biodiversity, covering the southern limit of northern tropical species and the northern limits of the southern temperate species. Muttonbird Island is accessible by walking along the breakwater from the harbour, with the nature reserve protecting a significant wedge-tailed shearwater breeding site. The Muttonbird Island footpath leads to a viewing platform where whales are often spotted between June and November. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coffs_Harbour

There are a lot of Restaurants and eating places along the Jetty and Marina so it is a popular tourist destination. The Marina has it restaurant overlooking the water and the Marina . We went to the Surf Club for lunch. The food was outstanding, with generous serves and tastefully presented. We sat under umbrellas on the back terrace enjoying the food and the view.
