Coffs Harbour

Coffs Harbour sits in a unique position where the Great Dividing Range meets the Australian east coast. The subtropical city lies between the forested hills and sparkling blue waters. Coffs Harbour is a modern city with a small-town atmosphere and the hub from which to explore Coffs Coast’s enormous selection of things to see and do.



Our office is located in the Health Precinct within the Specialist Medical Centre.

Coffs Harbour Health Campus

Coffs Harbour Health Campus was built in 2001 and is the major referral hospital for the Coffs Network of the Mid North Coast Local Health District.   It provides a broad range of specialist services to the residents of Coffs Harbour, Bellingen and Nambucca local government areas.    With 292 beds, it provides the majority of specialist medical and surgical services for the Network.

Services include general medicine, surgery, day surgery, planned and emergency theatre service, coronary care (including coronary angiography unit), intensive care, obstetrics, paediatrics, 24-hour Emergency Department, oncology, palliative care, rehabilitation, stroke, acute renal dialysis, high dependency and mental health and an extensive range of outpatient clinics.

Allied health services, including occupational therapy, speech pathology, social work, physiotherapy, dietetics, radiology, pathology, and pharmacy, are an integral part of the organisation and contribute to the high level of patient care at Coffs Harbour Health Campus.



Coffs Harbour is situated on the east coast of Australia, halfway between Sydney and Brisbane. With its neighbouring areas, it makes up the Coffs Coast, a tourist destination encapsulating an opportunity where the mountains meet the sea, bringing with it a diverse natural environment.

Living on the Coffs Coast means being a part of a population of 85,000 (73,000 in Coffs Harbour LGA) with the advantages of seaside and hinterland village living, but with the availability of city standard facilities and services.

Coffs Harbour is a great place to raise a family. In addition to world class education and medical facilities, the city boasts a wonderful climate and outdoor lifestyle.
