North Coast TAFE has campuses located in scenic and exciting parts of Australia. This region extends from Forster in the south to Kingscliff in the north, which is located right next door to the bustling tourist haven, the Gold Coast. The North Coast of New South Wales is home to glorious tropical rainforests and beaches, excellent diving and fishing, bustling resort complexes and sleepy seaside villages.
Students and visitors to this part of the world can enjoy the temperate to sub-tropical climate, which provides the perfect native habitat for some of the best-known animals, the koala and kangaroo. Dolphins and whales are also a regular sight along the coastline.
Each of North Coast TAFE's campuses is located within close proximity of towns such as Port Macquarie, Byron Bay, Coffs Harbour and Kingscliff (a 20 minute drive from the Gold Coast), making them the ideal base from which to study as well as explore many of the attractions Australia has to offer.
