Taking the scenic tour of Australia via Sydney to Coffs Harbour
Article by Hugh McInnes
If you are on holiday in Australia, or simply want to see a bit of the countryside, you may want to think about heading out in a caravan to get from Sydney to Coffs Harbour. While you could easily just jump on a plane to make the trip, you would miss out on the many sandy beaches, the chance to swim, and the chance to see the many rainforests, villages, and wineries that mark the way – which is why taking the scenic route is always a bit more fun.
On your first day out on the road you should aim to get from Sydney to the Central Coast, which will allow you the chance to take in many unique sights. You can easily stop by the Bouddi National park to get some time out bushwalking or spending some time walking along the sandstone cliffs and rainforests – and even take the opportunity to find some secluded beaches. Head a bit more to the north of Sydney and make a stop, and you will find Avoca Beach, which is a favourite among families and those who want to relax due to the vast amount of holiday activities such as snorkelling, swimming, sail boarding, and canoeing.
Make sure that the activities do not distract you too much, however, because you will want to stay overnight in a town that is near the Central Coast so that the next day you are ready to head towards the Hunter valley near Newcastle. Newcastle Harbour is filled with plenty of additional activities, including the chance to swim at Bar Beach, and plenty of wineries. Within the Hunter Valley alone there are more than 120 different wineries, so make sure you allow some time to see everything that the area has to offer before settling down in the nearby historic villages of Lovedale or Wollombi.
From the Hunter Valley you will be moving on to Port Stephens were there are 26 beaches and a wonderful Lighthouse called the Nelson Head Lighthouse that you can climb to the top of to look out over a panoramic view of the bay. From there you can hop on a ferry that will take you to Tea Gardens – or instead head towards the Myall Lakes National Park to see some wildlife and sit out in the sun for a bit at one of the many beaches.
Travel onwards the next day and you will get to finally reach your destination of Coffs Harbour, which will bring plenty of history both above ground and in the water. For those with an adventurous streak you can go scuba diving in Seal Rocks or you can head towards Port Macquarie Lighthouse Beach for some fishing, sun tanning, and even a chance to take a safari trip on the back of a camal. With plenty of white cliffs, beaches, and restaurants you will have quite a bit to keep you occupied regardless of the time frame you have to spend at the end of your holiday trip.
