About Muttonbird Island, Coffs Harbour

A little ahead of Coffs Harbour lays the wondrous island by the name of Muttonbird Island. Considered to the best mini day trips you can take from Coffs Harbour, the island is named after the bird species that are found here in abundance, especially from late August to early April. If you’re lucky, you’ll get to see some baby muttonbirds. There’s a 500 meter walk to the top of the trail where the vistas are so much more than the walk.

Muttonbird Island, Coffs Harbour Reviews

  • Every one should do this climb if you can. The view is amazing. Then walk across the top & down the other side. Sit for a while & take in the wonderful views. I try to do this walk a couple of times a week &never fail to be amazed by the changing scenery &bird life. ..Just do it. .....

  • Fantastic place for a walk. Great views to the Harbour, Jetty, Beach and the ocean.Whales can be spotted from here in the right season (between May and November). Make sure to check the weather before you go, beautiful place for a walk in the right sunny weather.

  • A great nature walk on a well designed path with explanatory signs to protect the mutton bird nests. This leads to a 360 degree lookout and extends to a lower cliff top ocean view. Well done. It will be even better when the break water works are completed making the entrance walkway even better. A must for anyone visiting Coffs Harbour.

  • Great views of the city and ocean. Good for exercise and getting the heart pumping. At the right time of the year also great for whales. Mutton birds are cute also

  • Walk with a beautiful sea side scenery. Evenings and early mornings are the perfect time to visit.
