This is the star highlight of Coffs Harbour as it is the sacred abode of a local aboriginal community. The island offers pristine view of endless blue seas and Solitary Island; if you're lucky, you may even spot a pod of whales.

What to do: Want to spot dolphins, seals and penguins? Then visit Dolphin Marine Magic that serves as a rehabilitation centre for these animals. The good thing about the centre is that it does not offer animals for show or entertainment, but gives you a chance to observe them as they go about their day.
