NEW SOUTH WALES

7 days, 6 nights

YAMBA

DAY THIRTY-TWO to THIRTY-THREE

We started our long drive back down to Sydney stopping off at some recommended destinations on the way. The first stop was Yamba - some often say its a mini Byron Bay. A very cute village which was quite a sleepy town when we went, but with lovely cafes and of course more stunning beaches. If you feel like you want to put your feet up and have a movie evening, head to Yamba Cinema (there's two) which is a very basic cinema but what more do you want than some yummy popcorn, $10 tickets and a comfy seat.

 

The next morning we drove to Sunrise Dolphin Park Beach to watch the sunrise - absolutely gorgeous and like the name suggests, we saw so many dolphins playing in the sea! Afterwards we walked to the Angourie Blue and Green Pools.

 

Stayed: Calypso Yamba Holiday Park

Travel: Byron Bay to Yamba 1hour 45mins.

COFFS HARBOUR | PORT MACQUARIE

DAY THIRTY-FOUR

After a morning in Yamba, we headed down to Coffs Harbour and completed the Muttonbird Island Walk to see the views of the solitary Islands.

 

We then drove to Port Macquarie and did the coastal walk which is roughly 4km to Flynns Beach - such a scenic walk, views of beaches, and walking through the rainforests.

 

In the evening we drove to Blue Mountains so we had the whole day to explore the next day!

 

FYI if you are driving a camper van make sure you book in advance if you're going to arrive late - we failed to do so and had to park at a petrol station and take turns on who was asleep and who was awake... (You get fined if you're found parked on a street - they are very hot on it!)

Travel: Yamba to Coffs Harbour 1hour 40mins.

Coffs Harbour to Port Macquarie 1hour 40mins.
