  •  Check the Coffs Harbour City Council page for the latest information on car parks, roadworks, and road closures to plan your route.
  • Coffs Harbour offers plenty of long term and short term car park spaces in town—just be sure to read any signage as some areas have restricted time periods during business hours. Most street parking is limited to 1 and 2-hour time periods.
