Smugglers On The Beach is 5 minutes north of Coffs Harbour behind Korora Beach.
We stayed for 3 nights in unit 7, which is a first floor apartment. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful, giving us lots of advice on places to visit including a lovely walk, part of which was a board walk, to Aanuka beach. Our apartment was spacious and immaculate with a large kitchen including a full size oven.
Our hire car had a designated space under cover just down the steps from our apartment. There was a large veranda facing the lovely swimming pool and over the trees we could see the sea. Next to the pool. there were free communal washing facilities Check out time is the normal 10 a.m.
We thought Korara Bay was a much prettier area than Coffs Harbour. Just up the road from Smugglers is the Carobana confectionery factory which is worth visiting.
A short drive north of Coffs Harbour is Emerald Beach which is an idyllic place. The Saltwater restaurant, although in a gorgeous position, was quite pricey and the food wasn't anything special but the view more than made up for it. The Moonee Beach Nature Reserve is a bit further along the road after turning left past some houses. It didn't seem to be signposted but the nature reserve has a large car park. There are lots of kangaroos around and a delightful path overlooking the sea to the “Look at Me Now Headland” which leads round to another beach.
One day we drove inland along the Waterfall Way, stopping at Dangar Falls to have a picnic lunch and then on to Bellingen and the Dorrigo National Park where there is the Skywalk and a delightful boardwalk above the treetops. We also took a pleasant rainforest walk in the Dorrigo National Park to the lovely Crystal Shower Falls which takes about half an hour. At Urunga, which is a short way south of Coffs Harbour, there is an unusual and very long boardwalk which follows the river over the mangroves, past the lagoon and eventually to the beach and sea.
