Bordering the Tasman Sea and framed by sunny Queensland to the North and New South Wales to the South, the celebrated North Coast is one of Australia’s most popular destinations. Made famous by the Legendary Pacific Coast between Sydney and Brisbane, it will quickly become a must-do on your bucket list. As you make your way along the rugged coastline you’ll have lush hinterland to one side and sparkling turquoise waters to the other. From serene rivers and lakes, to laid-back seaside towns, and surf beaches where you can find a wave all to yourself, the North Coast of New South Wales is truly one of Australia’s most treasured gems.
Many itinerates pack the entire drive into just seven days, however with each stop you make along the journey you’ll be met with endless excuses to never leave. Of the many notable beachside villages to discover, Port Macquarie and Coffs Harbour are two that cannot be missed, providing countless opportunities to become immersed nature. Spot whales, dolphins and turtles; snorkel or dive amidst an abundance of marine life including corals, sponges and fish; or simply relax at a seaside café with a coffee in hand and watch the world go by.
