Take in Northern NSW's beautiful coast and country. Cruise the coastal beauty of Port Macquarie to Coffs Harbour and explore hidden hinterland treasures and ancient cultures along the way. On this drive, start at stunning Port Macquarie beach, then travel north and check out one of the best right-hand point breaks in the world at beautiful Crescent Head. Then, continue on to Eungai and take in the magnificence of the 495m high Mount Yarrahapinni.
Follow the Nambucca River up to Nambucca Heads where the beautiful beaches and coastal scenery meet thriving local street art – an outdoor graffiti gallery known locally as the V-Wall. Turn inland to discover Bellingen, home to a vibrant community of artisans and artists by the Bellinger River.
Head through the mountains to Dorrigo and on to the thriving hub of Grafton, before turning back towards the coast. En route to Coffs Harbour, pop over to Forest Sky Pier and make the most of magnificent coastal views over the city, and finish your trip by getting up close and personal with our ocean friends on a whale watching tour.
