Muttonbird Island - Review
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
If you are not fairly fit don't go. Very steep up and down but quite well paved. Don't just stop at the top. Path continues down to seaward side. Well worth the hike. You may even see whales. Approx. walking time there and back 1 hour.
Great place for a hike! Spectacular 360 degree views of the Coffs Coast. While the path is paved, it does get quite steep in places, so take care.
Great island. Lovely walk to the end. Great information on the birds and conservation work.
Nice nature reserve, though mostly grass and low lying bushes. Might see a mutton bird if you are lucky. Also has a whale watching station.
A good walk up and down. Great to do daily if you want to get fit. We saw many whales O we the other side.
