Situated roughly 36 kilometres north of Coffs Harbour and 40 kilometres south of Grafton along the Pacific Highway, Corindi consists of a small village community set in largely untouched bush and coastal lands. The islands, ocean, headlands and estuaries in this area are within the Solitary Islands Marine Park.
Corindi Beach offers long, rolling beaches and pockets of coastal rainforests, with many walks and cultural activities.
The surrounding areas to the west of Corindi Beach offer vast expanses of bushland and rainforest with a history of gold mining in early settlement days. It is ideal terrain for four-wheel driving with many mountain streams and water holes for swimming. There are extensive blueberry and exotic fruit farms north west of the village. Corindi Beach has a tavern, a caravan park, general store, service station, arts and crafts and a cultural centre.
