The Coffs Coast region has a rich and fascinating heritage. From Gumbaynggirr stories of spiritual connection to the land, to the stories of lighthouse keepers, pioneers, timber workers, gold miners and farmers, the Coffs Coast is a place of romance, bravery, adventure, tragedy, and amazing inventions!
Coffs Harbour Regional Museum aims to bring Coffs Harbour’s history alive by reflecting the social and cultural history of the Coffs Harbour Region. The Museum's primary, but not exclusive emphasis, is on developing collections and exhibitions reflecting the relationships between the region’s residents and the area’s maritime and hinterland waterways.
The Museum has been fortunate to have received grants that have helped us to store our valuable photographs. There are thousands of digitised images available on
Picture Coffs Harbour to explore any many more to come.
Our interactive exhibitions and rich displays cater for all ages, including children.
