After arriving into Coffs Harbour Station, travel by coach into the Great Diving Range: at 3500km, this is the third-longest mountain range in the world. Poised on the edge of the rainforest, Sealy Lookout is home to Forest Sky Pier, a viewing platform soaring dramatically out from the hillside. The views from here across Coffs Harbour’s golden coastline to Solitary Islands Marine Park are magnificent.
Back down in the town, enjoy free time to browse through the stalls at the Sunday-morning Harbourside Markets. The vibe here is sustainable, ethical and local: look forward to fresh produce, tasty snacks, rich coffee, enthusiastic buskers and quirky arts and crafts. It’s an authentic snapshot of life in this heavenly coastal corner.
Jetty Beach is nearby: paddle in the shallows, do a spot of beachcombing, or see what’s biting as you chat to the fisher-folk along Coffs’ historic timber jetty.
Worked up an appetite? Lunch is served back on the Great Southern as you cross the border into Queensland.
