“The ever-popular Diggers Beach is perfectly located for tourists – right across the road from Coffs Harbour’s Big Banana. Wide and sheltered, Diggers makes for a lovely wind-free beach walk. It’s not only visitors who love this beach either; it’s a favourite among locals for surfing, fishing and swimming. There’s plenty to do if you’d rather stay dry; take a seat at the elevated pavilion to admire the view and look at the birds, or you can walk the short pathway to Macauleys Headland. When you’ve had enough of the surf, take a break from the beach in the neighbouring Diggers Beach picnic area. Featuring a children’s playground and plenty of space to run around, it’s ideal for a bbq ”

Restaurant
“Hidden away from the Pacific Highway is this establishment. A pleasant atmosphere welcome you upon arrival. Presentation is always great and tastes excellent. The desserts which follow are beyond belief in size with a good presentation and a sugar kick to last for some time. This is certainly a visit to remember and worthy of recommendation.”

“Night Markets at the Jetty for a relaxed evening sampling treats from the international cuisine food stalls and listen to live music while you share a glass of wine on the grass. Bring a picnic blanket or fold up chairs and enjoy the summer evening with the locals.”
