Dolphin Marine Magic is located on the beautiful Mid North Coast of NSW, in the city of Coffs Harbour and sits approximately midway between Sydney and Brisbane. We are very close to the jetty precinct and adjacent to the Coffs Creek and we have been ‘edutaining’ (educating/entertaining) and engaging visitors for more than four decades.On Boxing Day in 1970, the marine park opened as a rescue and rehabilitation centre for native marine animals, and we continue with this work. We have a Rehabilitation Licence issued by NSW – Office of Environment & Heritage – NSW National Parks & Wildlife Services. Additionally, we work closely with our local branch of NSW National Parks & Wildlife Services and have a Memorandum Of Understanding (MOU) with them on how we will work together for the benefit of our native marine animals. « less

Love the seal and dolphin kisses. Loved that you could get up close to the animals and feed them (with supervision). Small little park but lots to do.

We saw the dolphins swim around in their pool and play games with the dolphins occasionally coming to say hello to some people watching them. I got a dolphin and seal kiss and got to feed a seal...

What a wonderful little sea world with so many opportunities for intimate encounters with the seals, dolphins and penguins. Check the show times to plan your 1/2 day excursion. The staff are very informative and helpful. The dolphin and seal show was excellent (much better than the croc show at the Australia zoo)! There is a nice cafe and picnic... More
