If you’re looking for something different to do, we can offer you an experience that you can’t get anywhere else in Australia.

The National Cartoon Gallery in Coffs Harbour is the ONLY Cartoon Gallery in Australia and one of only about twelve in the entire world. It has the largest collection of cartoons in the country and its exhibitions regularly feature works from many of our leading cartoonists.

If you have a sense of humour and an hour or two to enjoy yourself, visit the National Cartoon Gallery. The address is John Champion Way, off the big roundabout near the Racecourse.

There are two separate galleries in the new building, and the original one started life 80 years ago as an Air Force underground bunker in WWII.

There aren’t many wartime bunkers still in service, so come and experience a truly unique experience.

As well as seeing some great art, you can enjoy a cup of coffee and a snack in our Gallery Café or on our terrace with a spectacular view over the city.

There’s also a well-stocked shop with lots of unusual items to buy.

So come and enjoy a totally different experience and spend an interesting and amusing hour or two in Australia’s only cartoon gallery.
