Coffs Harbour owes its name to Captain John Korff, who named the area Korff's Harbour when he was forced to take shelter from storm in the area in 1847. Its name was accidently changed by the surveyor for the crown when he reserved land in the area during 1861.
Coffs Harbour is the hub for a thriving banana industry. One of the biggest attractions is the Big Banana, one of Australia's Big Things, celebrating the region's best known export. There is also a popular underwater diving spot on a small natural reef.
