3. Dorrigo National Park
The Dorrigo National Park is part of the Gondwana World Heritage-listed rainforest. It is a one-hour drive from Coffs Harbour following an incredibly scenic route. It is the perfect spot to go birdwatching as well as hunting waterfalls. The weather up there can be quite different from the coast, so we suggest being prepared and bringing some warmer clothes just in case. There are quite a few places where you can jump in and swim to see the waterfalls up close or even sneak behind the water curtain, so bringing swimmers & a towel is also recommended.
There are many places to swing your clubs and hit some pars here on the Coffs Coast. Bonville Golf Resort has been acknowledged as one of the most beautiful golf courses in the world and is a 10-minute drive from Sawtell. If you are a keen golfer, this should be worth your trip as this Par 72 championship course has been voted Australia’s favourite golf course.
The NSW Mid North Coast really is a pristine paradise with its crystal clear and deep blue ocean, as well as the many nuances of lush green from the rainforest. Get a different perspective of the region, and book yourself in for a skydive with Coffs Skydivers for a truly panoramic view.
