Coffs Harbour, North Coast New South Wales
Coffs Harbour is undergoing a quiet renaissance as $300 million in construction projects approved by the Coffs Harbour City Council – the highest value in 18 years – unfurl.
Infrastructure developments currently under way include hospitals, an industrial estate, a university expansion and an international stadium.
Coffs Harbour has shed its image as a sleepy seaside town and the home of the Big Banana and is emerging as a regional centre of significance.
Recognised in 2009 by the NSW Government as a ‘Centre of Strategic Growth’, Coffs Harbour has a diversified range of industries, now enhanced by the arrival of the National Broadband Network and a multi-billion dollar upgrade to the Pacific Highway.
Two universities, two hospitals and a vibrant tourism industry provide good employment opportunities.
But the most appealing aspect of Coffs Harbour is its relaxed lifestyle, affordable dwelling prices and low vacancies - presenting a package worthy of consideration by property investors and home buyers.
