  Getting around

Coffs Harbour Airport (CFS) is located off Highway A1 (Pacific Highway), 5 km (3 mi) south of downtown Coffs Harbour, and one of the most active regional airports in New South Wales.

Coffs Harbour is a lively small city situated between Sydney (350 km / 210 mi) to the south and Brisbane (550 km / 330 mi) to the north, on the coast of New South Wales. The Pacfic Highway is your bread and butter up and down the coast, and runs through the heart of Coffs Harbour, which has long been a mainstay of family vacations for regional families. In addition to its own Dolphin Conservation Park, Coffs Harbour is surrounded by a spectacular array of attractions within a short drive, including The Big Banana Fun Park (4 km / 2.5 mi), Bongil Bongil National Park (21 km / 13.6 mi), and Sapphire Beach (11 km / 6.6 mi).

At any rate, getting around the Coffs Harbour region will require a car hire, and driving in Australia is only a challenge if you’re not used to driving on the left. GPS is recommended for route planning and navigation, while air conditioning is suggested during all four seasons in New South Wales, even if you plan to hug the coast — where temps are generally cooler in summer and moderate in winter.

  Choosing your car

You’re flying in to Coffs Harbour for a well-deserved vacation and you need to rent a car. Are you traveling alone, as a couple, as a family, or a group of friends?

For solo travelers, couples, and really good friends, a Nissan economy is a great budget choice. Compact Hyundai cars get the job done without breaking the bank. Toyota standard and intermediate cars seat five passengers. The Mitsubshi SUV is ideal for city and country driving. And the Toyota 7-9 seater minivan is the premiere people carrier on the roads of Australia.

On longer road trips, drivers are advised to take a break every two hours or so. If traveling with companions, it’s wise to have more than one driver on the rental contract, so you can take turns behind the wheel.

4

The further inland you travel, the more likely you’ll encounter animals either on the road or crossing the road. Stay alert and watch your speed.

5

Hands-free cell phone use is allowed at all times. Drivers may not touch or handle cell phones at all, even if the car has come to a complete stop. This includes using the device as a de facto GPS.
