The major access road from the Pacific Highway is from Woodburn, which is 18km from Coraki and connects Coraki with Casino, 31km further inland.

Coraki, the Tea Tree capital of the region is centrally located to inland centres, national parks and beaches. The quiet charm and genuine hospitality of the locals is a welcome bonus. Boating and water sports abound and there is even a 9 hole golf course that would stand the test of the most demanding of golfers.
The Coraki Riverside Caravan Park, centrally located in the village right beside the river, makes for a peaceful home base when visiting the region.
