Coffs Coast Regional Park Trust Board

Coffs Coast Regional Park protects 27 kilometres of coastal strip north of Coffs Harbour. It stretches from Macauleys Headland in the south to Corindi Beach in the north. The Park provides important recreation areas, walking tracks and beach access for the community and visitors to the region. 

Coffs Coast Regional Park Trust Board is responsible for the care, control and management of the Park. The implementation of park management is shared between the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service and the City of Coffs Harbour, on behalf of the Board.  

The Plan of Management Coffs Coast Regional Park 2021(PDF, 2MB) outlines the management principles, natural and cultural heritage values, and appropriate public use of the Park.

The Memorandum of Understanding 2018(PDF, 5MB) sets out the responsibilities of the City of Coffs Harbour for asset maintenance and National Parks and Wildlife for environmental protection.
