What to do in Coffs harbour

From fun runs to music festivals, Coffs Harbour's social calendar is jam-packed with things to do. If you're flexible with your travel dates, find out what's on throughout the year and start planning your getaway with us today.

Bello winter music festival

Get out in the great outdoors at the Bello Winter Music Festival. Held annually in July, this weekend camping festival brings artists from around the world to the small town of Bellingen, along with a handful of public speakers who run workshops between sets.

Coffs cup

Held every year in August, the Coffs Cup is the North Coast's biggest racing event. And with a massive prize pool up for grabs, you can expect to see the who's who of Australian racing at the track. To join them, pick up a ticket to the Lawn Party or splurge on a VIP table for you and your mates.

Coffs harbour running festival

Looking for your next challenge? Visit the Coffs Coast in September for the annual Coffs Harbour Running Festival. Whether you're a casual jogger or a seasoned pro, there's plenty of events to choose from. And with Park Beach just moments from the track, it's easy to cool off once you've crossed the finish line.


Taking over the streets of Woolgoolga every October, Curryfest is the North Coast's premier food event. Along with street food vendors, you'll find a wide range of market stalls selling everything from traditional garments to homemade jewellery. If you're more of a foodie than a fashionista, be sure to visit the festival spice shop to pick up some new flavours for your pantry at home.

Carols by candlelight

To get in the Christmas spirit, head to Brelsford Park in December for the annual Coffs Coast Carols by Candlelight. A combination of music, food stalls and fireworks, this annual celebration has grown to be one of the biggest events of the summer. And with free entry for the whole family, all you have to worry about is grabbing a spot near the stage.

Harbourside markets

If you're visiting over the weekend, be sure to keep Sunday morning free to explore the Harbourside Markets. From fresh vegetables to homemade beauty products, you'll find plenty on offer along the waterfront. After you've picked up a bargain, be sure to stick around for the live entertainment, which kicks off from 10am.

Made with love markets

Held quarterly at the Park Beach Plaza, the Made With Love Markets are the biggest handmade market of their kind on the Coffs Coast. Whether you're looking for recycled candles or organic pastries, you'll find it at this well-loved local event.
