Coffs Harbour

Home of the Big Banana, repopularised by the infamous Dune Rats song “Dalai Lama, Big Banana, Marijuana”, Coffs Harbour is home to heaps of green. Thick and ancient rainforest can be found in Dorrigo National Park and the Nymboida River winds through countless rapids on its way towards the ocean. Get searching and you’re sure to find a wild swimming hole all to yourself.
