Coff's Harbour, on the northern New South Wales coast, is almost 550 kilometres north of Sydney. Named "Korff's Harbour" in 1847 by Captain John Korff who used the area as shelter from a major storm, the town had it's name changed by accident by a surveyor 14 years later.

The region is a huge producer of bananas, with tourism (mainly for diving) following as the second most profitable industry.

Coff's Harbour is in the record books as host to the highest scoring soccer World Cup qualifier matches ever, when Australia beat American Samoa here with a score of 31-0 in 2001.
