Coffs Coast Regional Park

Coffs Coast Regional Park (Regional Park) was gazetted in October 2003. Comprising 366 hectares (ha) of coastal lands stretching over 27 kilometres from Coffs Harbour to Corindi, the park protects some important natural and cultural values and provides numerous recreational opportunities for local and tourist visitors.

CCRP is managed by the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service and Coffs Harbour City Council, under the direction of the Coffs Coast Regional Park Trust Board, which is appointed by the NSW Government.

The Trust Board, Council and National Parks are engaging the local community in an ongoing process to create individual Masterplans for the various Reserves within the Regional Park, according to the guidelines established in the overall Coffs Coast Regional Park Plan of Management.

This Project Page provides one of many forums in which the community can become engaged in planning for Reserves within the Regional Park.

Masterplans developed in consultation with the community have now been adopted for Diggers Beach Reserve, Arrawarra Headland Reserve and Sandy Beach Reserve.

These Masterplans can be viewed in the Documents section of this Project Page.

The Emerald Beach community is currently engaged in discussions to develop a Masterplan for the Emerald Beach Reserve.

Stage 1 of the Regional Park incorporated 366 ha of Council-managed Crown reserves, while 60 ha of stage 2 additions include Council-owned freehold lands and two ‘paper’ roads. Additionally, 98 ha of private lands purchased by the Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) as an offset to the biodiversity impacts of the Pacific Highway upgrade between Sapphire and Woolgoolga have recently been added to Coffs Coast Regional Park.

Regional parks are lands reserved to protect and conserve areas in natural or modified landscapes which are suitable for sustainable public recreation and enjoyment. They offer open spaces for cultural and recreational activities (including dog walking in some locations) which may not be permitted in national parks, state conservation areas or nature reserves.

The Regional Park is a top spot for fishing, surfing and birdwatching. You’ll find great picnic areas, plus beaches with off-leash dog zones.

It’s easy to experience an endless summer at Coffs Coast Regional Park. Lose yourself in its string of pristine beaches which together offer everything from unbeatable surf and safe swimming to picnic areas and children’s playgrounds.

Explore undulating dunes, rainforest pockets, tranquil lakes, inviting parklands and charming coastal towns along the coastal walk and discover majestic headlands ideal for whale watching and taking in sweeping views of Solitary Islands Marine Park.
