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

Wasnt bad, but $35 per adult is top end..The animals are well trained and displayed. Staff are friendly and excellent with the kids. However, we got there 3/4 the way through the main Dolphin/seal show and was still charged full price. Makes sure you check the schedule because if you just miss the main show you will find it tough... More

We visited in 2009 while they were under construction. watching the penguins was our highlight they were very cute and entertaining. Aquarium was cool and the seal and dolphin show was informative and interactive however our kids (under 5) were bit more interested in wanting to run around on the grassy areas and chase birds then to sit and listen...

A great place. You can see the love between trainers and animals. Dolphins are especially friendly. You get lots of opportunities to meet the animals and see them up close.

We visited Dolphin Marine Magic at the beginning of August and we paid for our 16 year old daughter to be a "trainer for the day" and my son to have a "dolphin experience". This really was the highlight of our 3 week tour of Australia, an experience that we will all never forget! Although it was a little expensive... More

An excellent attraction for locals and visitors to Coffs Harbour. Great cafe also. The animals are the main attraction though and the experience can be personalized to suit. This needs to be booked in advance though.

I really liked it here, it was very intimate and mostly focused on seals, penguins and dolphins. You got to feed them and also get some kisses. I really enjoyed the quick peck I got for my photo.

To pay so much and see so little ... a couple of dolphins and some penguins. We were less than 10 people there. Went after 10 minutes and it was really bad
