Living on the Mid North Coast

Tired of big cities? Want to start your days sitting on your deck in the sun, enjoying a cup of coffee and listening to the birds? Or would you rather have a surf or a walk along the beach before work?

Wonderful beaches, world heritage listed national parks, hinterland villages, great food and fine wine, excellent private and public schools, warm and friendly staff are all waiting for you on the Mid North Coast.

The Mid North Coast Area Health Service covers a region stretching from Camden Haven in the south to Coffs Harbour in the north and the Great Dividing Range in the west.

Our region boasts some of the best, sun drenched stretches of beach anywhere in Australia. We also have magnificent ancient rainforests and mountain ranges. The region is littered with large river systems which bring the crystal clear waters of the mountains all the way to the sea.

Recreational options are plentiful. For those interested in water sports, there is plenty of boating, sailing and surfing. Scuba diving is also popular with some excellent wreck and reef dives available close to shore. Fishermen are also well catered for with innumerable options for lake, beach and estuary fishing while deep sea fishermen can fish the many reefs that lie hidden close to shore or go to the edge of the continental shelf for game fishing.

The mountains offer a wide range of bushwalking, camping and mountainbiking opportunities. The sheer vastness of the region also means that you will never run out things to explore by car and if you have a 4 wheel drive, you can discover the more remote and untouched places that the area is renown for.

Finding a place to live on the Mid North Coast will also not be a problem. Units by the beach, houses in towns or rural properties where you can enjoy the peace and quiet are all available. Accommodation in the Mid North Coast is also quite affordable.
