North Coast Hinterland Adventures

Tea Gardens
Port Macquarie

Take the road less travelled and choose your own adventure in the NSW hinterland, only a short hop away from the stunning Pacific Coast.

From the relaxed seaside village of Tea Gardens, wind your way inland through the Great Lakes region to Gloucester. Stop along the way for an outdoor adventure, a trek through the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Barrington Tops National Park and soak in the scenic waterfalls. Make your way onto Wingham and delight in the relaxed pace of this historic timber town.

Revel in the rustic countryside and adventurous mountain trails, venturing through lush rainforest at Ellenborough Falls before passing through enchanting rural towns such as Comboyne and Byabarra.

Head on to Wauchope on the Hastings River, the gateway to nearby national parks in the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area, before linking up with the magnificent beaches at Port Macquarie and heading back to Tea Gardens through Buladelah.
