Coffs Harbour as a city is the most beautiful place on earth. We are situated approximately six (6) hours driving time from Sydney and four and a half (4 1/2) hours from Brisbane.
Coffs Harbour enjoys a fantastic climate – some experts rate our climate as the most perfect in the world!! The local economy is reliant on tourism, tropical fruits, fishing, administration and education. A large number of retired people live in the area. Coffs Harbour is a great place to live and St Augustine’s School is proud to be making a contribution to the city’s development.
