Coffs Harbour Muttonbird Island, Coffs Harbour
Muttonbird Island Nature Reserve is a nature reserve off the shore of Coffs Harbour, New South Wales, Australia, on the southern boundary of the Solitary Islands Marine Park. It is linked to the mainland by a causeway, which acts as the northern breakwater for the harbour. With over 5,500 breeding pairs, it is a major breeding ground for wedge-tailed shearwaters (Puffinus pacificus), known locally as muttonbirds, which migrate annually to the Philippines but return to breed on the island.Plan my Coffs Harbour trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

A wonderful walk during mutton bird incubation period. The walk is initially quite steep. It is paved the whole way. Not suitable for anyone with walking difficulties. Many bicycle out to the start and leave their bikes at the beginning. We sighted two dolphins during the walk. Family friendly. Ensure you have own water.
You can’t go wrong visiting the Muttonbird island. A very nice walk while spotting the birds, whales traveling across the ocean and beautiful fish life.
