Located on the east coast of Australia, almost half way between Sydney and Brisbane, Coffs Harbour covers an area of 945 square kilometres. Home to more than 62,000 people, this favoured spot has developed into one of the biggest growth areas in regional NSW, as people move here in search of a better life-style for themselves and their families.With its mild, pleasant climate and affordable housing, the city is within easy reach of both Sydney and Brisbane by air, road and rail, and sea. Visiting yachts, both from international and Australian waters are welcome guests to our harbour, as they take advantage of the extremely safe, all weather, entrance and the 183 berth marina. This regional North Coast centre has many outstanding natural advantages and boasts of excellent facilities, particularly in education, health and sport, thereby adding to its enticement as a business centre.In addition to the six government and independent high schools, the city enjoys one of the most progressive education facilities in the State, combining Southern Cross University, a senior high school and what is perhaps the most modern TAFE college in NSW.
