North Coast Regional Botanic Garden: Coffs Harbour is town on the North Coast of New South Wales and is the home of this beautiful Botanic Garden. The North Coast is one of the fastest growing areas in Australia. In general, Australians prefer to live on or near the coast.
The North Coast Regional Botanic Garden is situated east of the Central Business District. It covers an area of 20 hectares (50 acres) and is a horticultural showcase. The Gardens contain a balanced mixture of natives and exotics. At the entrance is the Prime Display Area that is packed with many colourful plants. There is a Sensory Garden with roses and herbs, a bed for endangered species, a North Coast rainforest garden and a Mangrove Boardwalk.
The Mangrove Boardwalk is an interpretive walk that wends it way through a mangrove area. Signs, along the Boardwalk, explain the environmental importance of mangroves.
There is also a 300-metre self-guided nature walk through a section of original Coffs Harbour bushland.
The North Coast Regional Botanic Garden has something to offer all gardeners and those interested in our unique Australian environment.
