Our top picks: Best Coffs Harbour accommodation

Pet-friendly Coffs Harbour accommodation

A huge draw to Coffs Harbour for pet owners is the amount of dog-friendly beaches in the area, some of which are off-leash.

Luckily for owners, there's plenty of beachside accommodation that caters to your four-legged friend. For example, Mcauleys Beach House welcomes pets and is a five-minute walk from the dog-friendly Diggers Beach.

Friday Creek is home to several self-catered cottages that sleep up to eight people, as well as your cat, dog or almost any other pet you might have.

If you're a stickler for traditional lodgings, one of the only hotel-type accommodations in the area that allows pets is the Big Windmill Motel. It also happens to be a steal for a night's stay.

Our top picks for pet-friendly accommodation: Friday Creek Retreat, Mcauleys Beach House and Big Windmill Motel.

Best for budget travellers: Big Windmill Corporate & Family Motel

Cabin accommodation in Coffs Harbour

Reconnecting with the great outdoors is one of the best things about Coffs Harbour. So what's the best way to do it? With a cosy cabin of course.

Most caravan parks in the area offer cabins of all shapes and sizes. They often include a kitchen, living space and a small outdoor space. All of them, with the exception of BIG4 Park Beach, are a 10-minute drive from Coffs Harbour, so you'll need your own transport to get around.

BIG4 Park Beach Holiday Park has a more central location, as well as all of the extras that you'd expect from a big-name caravan park. It offers beachside cabins that can accommodate up to eight people.

A little bit of cabin luxury can be found further up the north coast at Emerald Beach Holiday Park. It's owned by Discovery Parks and has spa cabins with private balconies and BBQ areas.

If you're on a budget, you may want to find something a little less dear. Locally run spaces like Park Beach Cabins offer more affordable alternatives. The lodgings may be simple, but at $50 a night, you can't complain.

Our top picks for cabin accommodation: BIG4 Park Beach Holiday Park, Emerald Beach Holiday Park and Park Beach Cabins
