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

The staff and show was great. The information relayed was terrific. Unfortunately the facilities were very dated and need some attention. The seals and porpoises were wonderful and for the kids it was so good as they got to touch them.

Decided to check out some sea mammals being an animal lover and big kid! Got close up encounters with the blue penguins, rubbed the belly of dolphins and played ball with them. Watched sea lions play and even had a 50kg sea lion sit on my foot and lean on my leg - ha ha. Feeding the fish was a... More

Loved it. Was very well organised & structured. The kisses were smoothly executed & there was not much waiting around. We went on a Monday out of school holidays so it could be different at other times though.

One of, if not the best tourist park we have been too - this includes the best of the Gold Coast (which cost near $100 per adult) and the best if the US (Disneyland and Universal Studios). The opportunity to get so close to Dolphins, Seals, Penguins and other marine life in a non threatening way is second to none.... More
