Its name was accidentally changed by the surveyor for the crown when he reserved land in the area during 1861. Nowadays, Coffs Harbour is known for its banana plantations, the iconic 'Big Banana' and for its great fishing.

The combination of great weather, stunning hinterland forests, sandy beaches and a growing cosmopolitan centre make Coffs Harbour a popular spot for tourist seeking fun and relaxation.
