Six Outdoor Adventures for your Bucket List all found on the Coffs Coast.
Coffs Harbour’s appeal lies largely in the area’s natural beauty, attracting outdoor lovers to the uncrowded coastline and rainforest hinterland. All six of the following experiences occur in or around National Parks.
The difference with the Coffs Coast, compared to other regions, is that you can do a variety of genuine nature experiences, without travelling far. Plus you can dine at some amazing cafes and restaurants along the way.
The Solitary Islands Coastal Walk is interspersed with wildlife experiences like Muttonbird Island, the most accessible seabird rookery in NSW. At Dorrigo you have a rainforest of world heritage significance where you walk in old growth forest.
Once a year visitors have the rare opportunity to fly to one of NSW’s isolated lighthouses, just off Coffs Harbour’s shoreline.
For lovers of scenic walks, this is arguably NSW’s most stunning track with more than 60km of coastline to discover.
Drive just an hour from Coffs Harbour to experience awe-inspiring waterfalls that stand alongside 600 year old trees. It is easily accessible from the visitor centre with tracks descending into the forest.
As humpback whales migrate along the Coffs Coast, the ultimate wildlife experience is to swim beside these magnificent creatures with some of the best Whale Watching providers around.
Nothing beats the adrenaline rush of jumping out of a plane, except if it is NSW’s highest beach landing sky dive! Simply a must with the rush of the free fall combined with the serene gliding as you parachute over the beautiful Coffs Coast.
Gumbaynggirr guides run tours to connect visitors to their ancient culture and country. You can have a cultural experience with local people whose ancestors have been on this country for thousands of years. It’s the real deal.
Thank you Jason & Lisa for letting us enjoy your wonderful home. Great walks, evenings at the beach and lovely warm sunshine.
We will be sure to recommend you to friends.The Hunts
Thank you for opening the doors to your beautiful home for us. We thoroughly enjoyed it and loved every bit of it. You have made this home with a lot of love and care and it clearly shows. So much thought and effort has been put in every corner of the house that it gives you the fuzzy feeling inside. We can’t wait to be back.
(Sanam, Kanishk & family, SYDNEY)
Wow! Just wow.
Boy do I wish we were staying longer. We will absolutely be back as we loved your gorgeous cottage. So beautifully and thoughtfully kitted out. And super comfortable beds. Great shower. Excellent kitchen and dining set up. Everything we could possibly need. We wish we had more time to sit out under the wisteria.
Next time!Jane & Family ( Caringbah)
“The house was very clean, modern, luxuriously appointed, beautifully decorated, excellent appliances, comfy beds, and lovely gardens. Close to the beach, a Fun Park, and a shopping centre.”
Many thanks Lisa & Jason
Hi Jason & Lisa
Thanks for having us! We are travelling North to Cedar Pocket to get married, and this was a perfect stop over. It is such a beautiful and relaxing home. We look forward to staying at your holiday rental again.Christopher & Lauren
Jason & Lisa,
What a lovely house! We have so enjoyed our 2 nights. All the ‘inclusions & treats’ were very much appreciated. So very well stocked!
Thank you again.Bill & Pauline
Your beautiful holiday house felt like a ‘home’ away from home. It has to be the most well appointed house that we have ever stayed in. We felt very special to arrive to find all the little ‘extras’.
Many thanks.Julie, Robert, Zoe & Scott – Port Macquarie
We have had a wonderful stay here at Diggers Beach!!! We want to stay forever! 🙂 Thank you for everything, this house is amazing and we can’t wait to come back again.Col, Rhiannon & Family
Dear Jason & Lisa,
Such a wonderful place with everything that one requires for a memorable holiday with family. Your house is a home and we wished we could have stayed longer. The amount of detail and effort is remarkable. Thank you!Sharon and Family
For a first time booking privately I wasn’t sure what to expect. Communication and booking was simple and easy. The electronic door code was great as we had no keys to lose or worry about. The little extra personal touches made it even better. The house is amazing, very clean, with everything you need at your fingertips. Great location as the beach is a 2 minute walk. Thank-you, we will be back!Melisa – Armidale
Dear Lisa & Jason,
Thank you, we have really enjoyed our stay. We would love to come back to Coffs Harbour and when we do your cottage will be the first place on our list.
We loved Diggers Beach, water was amazing!!Tina & Bobby – Barney Miller Surf Classic
Thank you so much for such lovely accommodation. We loved everything and had a super time. Your cottage is beautiful with such thoughtful detailing. We shall certainly be back.Syd, Judy, Linda and Neil
We enjoyed our stay @ Digger’s Beach Cottage and we will definitely be back! From the time we walked in we felt right at home. The whole cottage is modern from the kitchen to the bathrooms. The linen that was provided was clean and crisp and we received a beautiful welcome basket which was a nice touch.
Beautiful cottage and highly recommended!!!Gretta
Check in was super easy, excellent communication from the owners as I was travelling with an elderly relative. Nearby Diggers Beach was beautiful and the house was perfect. Every little detail had been considered right down to complimentary snacks on arrival. Quiet and peaceful surroundings but close to the town for restaurants and shopping. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone visiting the area.Lisa – Lyneham
We can’t fault this place. It’s like a home away from home! We especially enjoyed the full kitchen that was equipped with everything we needed. Another highlight was the luxurious bathrooms with big rain showers! We wish we could have stayed longer!Nathan – NSW
Thank you so so much! This home is stunning.
See you again soon.

Hi Jason & Lisa,
Thank you for a wonderful 5 nights at Diggers Beach Cottage! You have thought of everything for the cottage.
All was fantastic. Many thanks again.
Vince & JulieVince & Julie – United Kingdom
We have loved every second of our stay here in your beautiful cottage. We could not find one thing that we didn’t love. We will definitely be back again soon. An absolute 10/10 for our stay.Matt & Jess
I would congratulate everyone who has decorated and designed this property. It is so far the best ‘home away from home’ that we have stayed in.
Thank you very much. Looking forward to our return visit and staying longer next time.Bulent & family – Sydney
Thank you for all of your special touches for our beautiful accommodation. We really enjoyed our time here.Carmen & Greg
The Diggers Beach Cottage would have to be one of the best places that we have ever stayed at. Not only is this place clean and comfortable it goes above and beyond with particular attention to detail. It really sits within luxury accommodation but comes at an affordable price. It was just the little things that we were able to use at the cottage that made a massive difference. A lot of thought has been put into the cottage which makes it stand a head above any accommodation that we have stayed at. Well done Lisa and Jason and thank you very much for providing a superior product, it really made our stay in Coffs Harbour a 10/10 experience.The Fraser Family
As a family we loved it! Location was perfect for the wedding we attended down the road. Close to the beach, shopping centre, Big Banana etc. The cottage was spacious, clean, had everything we needed and more! Beautifully decorated and modern with a lovely homey feel…better than living at home. The outdoor area and garden is beautiful. We absolutely loved our stay but wished it was longer.Selina
An extremely stylish renovation of a character cottage, spacious and very well equipped. Diggers Beach is lovely and only a very short walk away. Would highly recommend for the discerning traveller.Louise – Auckland
Well appointed cottage with tasteful decor and quality inclusions. Travelling on business with a young family, we couldn’t have asked for much more. The hosts have catered for young children with age appropriate games, books and DVD’s, and even cutlery! Plus the BBQ was cleaner than new!!Greg
We had the most incredible stay. The house is so beautiful, it looks like something off Pinterest. The hosts have thought of everything down to books, dvd’s, games, washing powder and sauces. The house is so well equipped. The welcome package and handwritten note was a beautiful touch. When I return to Coffs there is nowhere else I would stay. Recommend it for friend groups or families. It has it all.Sinead – Ireland
Diggers Beach is absolutely delightful! Thank you so much for all the little personal touches. Beds were wonderful as were the showers! We come down about 3 times a year to bring our son to a scout camp so will book your cottage every time!Michael & Simone
What can I say, but…FANTASTIC. What a place. It was only two nights, as we had time constraints, but next time it will be longer. Just a brilliant place, and the appeal and cleanliness was the best of any place we have ever stayed in, anywhere in the world, and that is not a figure of speech either.
Everything anyone could want is in the cottage. The area is quiet, friendly and knowledgeable neighbours, yet so close to shopping centre and of course the beach.
Many thanks for having such an amazing place, and also making the check in process so simple. What a hidden gem this place is.
Brian & Heather – Queensland
Thank you for sharing and preparing this wonderful home. We loved the attention to detail and the chocolates topped it off!
Job well done, will definitely recommend Diggers Beach Cottage.Karen, Jeff, Rei, Mary & Scott
Dearest Jason & Lisa,
Thank you so much for making such a beautiful holiday home for many to enjoy.
Thank you for your special Easter touches.
Just beautiful.The Prodromakis Family – Sydney 08/04/21
Straight from the pages of a designer homes magazine with every facility included. The short walk to the most beautiful beach more than makes up for not having a pool. Lovely hosts. Could not have asked for anything more.Anita – Great Britain
Hi Jason & Lisa,
We had a wonderful time here for the past 3 nights! It’s a beautiful, relaxing house. The books and DVD’s were great as it poured with rain. Hope we can visit again.Sarah & Mary (Sisters from Paynesville, NSW)
Thank you for a wonderful stay here at Diggers Beach Cottage. What an amazing place! As a child I used to come here every summer and stay at Park Beach but swim at Diggers. This trip brought back so many happy memories and I would love to return again with little Theodore now that we know we have such a fantastic place to stay!Penelope, Chris, Theo, John & Alanna
Thank you very much!
The cottage is wonderfully set up – as an architect and a designer + hospitality host, we are impressed!Peter & Gillian – darlingstreetapartments.com.au
“Easy access, great communication with hosts prior to arrival, clean and comfortable, well equipped, great location”
Big, cosy house, perfectly clean and friendly for those who want to cook something at home or do some laundry. There was more than enough pillows and blankets to keep us warm. Thank you for the beautiful stay. It was a pleasant surprise to find some games and toys as my daughter finally had something to play with after our 2 week trip!Candice – Singapore
Coffs is a stunning part of Australia and Diggers Beach Cottage is fabulous! The location was perfect – we enjoyed exploring the coastal walks, the beautiful beaches and the stunning coastline. Everything we needed and more was beautifully provided for in the cottage – it was truly a home away from home experience.
The thought and care you take to present the cottage at an exemplary level was appreciated and thoroughly enjoyed.
Our warmest thanks xxRebecca & Fred – South Australia
Hi Jason and Lisa,
Thank you so much for your kind welcome gift. We have had such a wonderful time here and enjoyed the cottage, beach, just everything so much. You have both done such a great job of making the cottage so complete, artistic and “homely”.
Thank you so much again.

Thank you so very much for this beautiful, clean and fully stocked cottage!! We wish we could have stayed longer. Enjoy these biscuits from Canada.The Franks Family – Canada
“Loved this place from the moment we walked in. The property was perfect in every way and had a lovely cosy feel to it. Excellent furnishings and fittings, warm and cosy and spotlessly clean, close to beaches and coastal walk and all the attractions. Would definitely recommend to family and friends. Hosts were very friendly & helpful. Toys and kids games were an added bonus for families with young kids like mine.”
Never had a better place to stay and never before have we been more welcome. THANK YOU…..;-)) EVERYTHING ….. a 110% percent thought-out concept, from the handwritten greeting card to the toy selection for our little ones. It lacks of NOTHING for big and small ….. a DREAM ….. THANKS, Thank You …. ;-))) Disappointed that we did not find the cottage earlier and we could not extend!The Bellmann Family – Germany
Your home was such a dream to stay in.
Thank you so much for a well cleaned and maintained home. We all had such a wonderful time staying. Hopefully we will be back again soon!Teghan, Chris & Andrew
Very beautiful house and lovely owner. Thank you so much for everything, we loved walking to the beach and spending time there. We love the place so much.Yuanyuan – Sunnybank
We just wanted to let you know that we had a great weekend.
The cottage was excellent you thought of everything (even a champagne stopper) and we really appreciated the little extra little things that made our stay special.
Thank you so much.Janet’s Group Alstonville – 60th birthday celebrations
Hands down one of the best places we have ever stayed in. Lisa and Jason were beyond brilliant hosts, and the house is pristine with every little detail and touch considered. Location is phenomenal, literally 100m from one of the most beautiful beaches in Australia. Coffs is a fantastic holiday destination. We will definitely return to this listing, in fact we can’t wait!Chris – Narrabeen, Sydney
Hi Jason & Lisa,
The stay here has been amazing – your home is beautiful, thank you so much for all the little extras. It made the stay very welcoming. I will recommend this place to my friends.
Thank you!Terrie, Ken, Vicki & Neil – Dundaloo Support Services
Exceeded expectations, this was an amazing property, a real home away from home. The attention to detail was outstanding.Wendy
I don’t usually write reviews as we travel a lot but our stay was so enjoyable I just had to put in one. Lisa was great to communicate with throughout the booking process and went above and beyond to organise cot, high chair and toys for our daughter. When we arrived we were instantly impressed by the location, layout, functionality and thoughtfulness into everything. We felt instantly at home with the decor and styling, even christmas decorations too! There were awesome cookbooks (which my wife loved, a nice collection of DVD’S (and a very cozy couch to go with the TV), boxes of toys and board games, a brilliant BBQ which made my culinary skills good for once, and even beach toys. The bathrooms are modern with beautiful towels and toiletries supplied. We spent a lot of time sitting and eating at the outdoor entertainment area which was surrounded by lovely gardenias and other beautiful plants and flowers. The location was ideal as it was very quiet and very close to the surf beaches which was great as I surfed a couple of breaks nearby. We spent a fair bit of time at Diggers Beach and on the massive lawn at the front of Aanuka Beach Resort which was great to run around and play on. All in all this was an amazing place and Lisa and Jason are absolutely amazing hosts. They have made it easy to appreciate the beautiful cottage. We will definitely be back! A big thank you guys!Chao & Kate
Dear Jason & Lisa,
Thank you for the delightful welcome gift and having us as guests at the cottage. Our stay was very pleasant though too brief. Your house is exceptionally neat and clean and it truly felt like a home away from home.
Nazeem & familyNazeem – Cape Town
What a home! We loved our stay at Coffs! Everything about the home was perfect and we loved everything about it….stylish, clean, homely, great comfy beds, lovely small touches with everything we needed from bathroom amenities and soaps to extras in the kitchen. Couldn’t have asked for anything more and we definitely felt refreshed and rejuvenated for the next part of our journey!Linda
Hi Jason & Lisa,
We had a lovely stay – thanks so much! I’m sure we will be back – perhaps a quick HSC break later in the year. Such a well thought out escape!Pip & Paul
We enjoyed our stay in Diggers beach cottage! Very neat, stylish, nicely renovated home which has everything you need! Linen and towels were so nice and fresh! There has been a lot of thought put into this house to ensure that guests are very comfortable! There are so many board games and books that we were able to have nice family evenings free of iPhones and iPads! Thank you very much for our holiday!Erwin and Olga
Thank you so much for everything! We were all very impressed with how everything is kept. We hope that we can come again one day. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!Rodriegves Family
This place really is a home away from home. I stayed with a friend and we immediately fell in love with the cottage. It was modern and clean with a warm homely feel. Lisa and Jason have created such a beautiful ambiance from the personal welcome note to the modern decor. Staying at the cottage was such a pleasure that I cannot wait to return. I highly recommend staying at this amazing cottage.Trish
Thank you very much for sharing your beautiful home with us. It is absolutely stunning. Everything needed was supplied and beautifully presented. We will definitely be back and will recommend to our friends.Simone & Gang
