Coffs Coast residents names their best picnic spots

FROM magnificent ocean frontage to mountainous backdrops, the Coffs Coast is abundant with national parks and beaches perfect for a picnic all year round.

With spring just around the corner, we asked our readers earlier this week to pick their best picnic spots along the Coffs Coast.

Coastal locations including Moonee Beach, Sandy Beach, Woolgoolga, Look At Me Now and Sawtell Headlands proved favourite spots.

One reader recommended the grass between the Coffs boat ramp and south wall as an ideal spot to put down the picnic rug and watch the surfers.

If you're out to impress your date, Red Rock Beach near Corindi was mentioned as a romantic place to watch the sun go down.

Surrounded by national parks and surf spots, Urunga was a popular pick for a picnic getaway.

Sealy Lookout also offers the best of both worlds with stunning 360-degree views of the Coffs Coast, featuring the coastline in one direction and the mountain ranges in the other.

Bongil Bongil National Park, Platypus Flats, Glenreagh Park, and Promised Lands were standout picks for those after a peaceful day in the rainforest.

Honourable mentions also go to Boambee Creek Reserve, Ebor Falls and Boronia Park, Sawtell, Repton Lookout and Mylestom.
