Our Location & History

Set above the Coffs Creek in the old butter factory Shearwater Restaurant is one of those special locations that once you find you always remember.

In the 1950’s and onwards the local schools had their swimming carnivals in the Coffs Creek. Some young Australian Olympians even trained there.

The old butter factory use to release the buttermilk into the creek everyday and some say that is why so many fish school below the front deck. We still offer stale bread to our customers to feed those fish and it excites the young and old alike. It has become a tourist attraction of its own.

You can now hire paddle boards and canoes below the restaurant or do some shopping in the surrounding shops.

It’s an amazing location with a great history.
