This cosmopolitan seaside village has always been a favourite destination with visitors thanks to its pretty setting between two headlands, an attractive main street with great cafes and restaurants that are just a stroll from the popular swimming and surfing beach, and easy access to creeks and a National Park.

Sawtell's First Avenue is characterised by the huge Moreton Bay fig trees in the colourful garden dividing the street. They protect and shelter not just the benches underneath but the entire main street.

Sawtell: Events

Sawtell Chilli Festival


One of the hottest events on the Coffs Coast events calendar.

Even though it's the middle of a Coffs Coast (mild) winter, the event is guaranteed to turn up the heat a few notches. Each year, the popular festival attracts thousands of people to the pretty seaside village, keen to sample the wide range of chilli-related foods and products, take part in fun activities and competitions and be entertained by live music, dancing, cooking and other performances.

The festival is an incredibly fun day out for the whole family. There will be street performances, rides for the kids, live music and dancing and, of course, the by now very famous annual Chilli Eating Competition!

Less fiery but equally fun competitions you can take part in are the Spanish/Mexican style Fancy Dress Competition and the Chilli-themed Hat Parade.
