DAY 1: Sydney to Port Stephen

Taking to the road you will travel along the stunning Central Coast region. Along the way make sure to take a side trip to the Bouddi Coastal walk; an 8km boardwalk which twists and turns along the rugged coastline. Rewarded with some amazing views and a swim at the Mcmasters beach.  If travelling from May to November you may spot the migrating Humpback whales. Another great spot is ‘The Skillion” a uniquely shaped promontory offering some of the best panoramic Pacific Ocean views along the coast. Finally check out the Norah Head Light house; virtually untouched since 1903 except for the installation of the electric light.


DAY 2: Port Stephens

Port Stephens is a beautiful Harbour town offering something for everyone. Best known for its crystal-clear water, beautiful beaches, gourmet restaurants and whale and dolphin watching. Why not join a dolphin watch boat trip today? There are boat trips that are designed to give you the best possible view of these playful creatures and on warm days, it may be possible to swim with the dolphins. If you want a more adventurous activity, then try quad biking on the sand dunes.


DAY 3: Port Stephens to Coffs Harbour

As you continue north pass through the seaside town of Port Macquarie, eventually arriving to the home of the Big Banana, Coffs Harbour. Coffs is well known for its spectacular coastline and friendly relaxed atmosphere. There are plenty of things to see and do in the area. You can explore the region with bush walks, fishing, theme parks and water sports or choose to do nothing but relax.


DAY 4: Coffs Harbour to Byron Bay

Your drive today will take you by the beautiful Bundjalung National Park on-route to Byron Bay. This park is renowned for stunning natural scenery from rivers, lagoons, and secluded beaches. Before heading into Byron Bay take a detour out to the hinterland and check out Minyon falls. Watch the water cascade to a deep palm-shaped gorge roughly 100m below from the lookout.


DAY 5: Byron Bay

Time to relax in Byron Bay, the most easterly point in Australia. Walk the Cape Byron Track to the trademark lighthouse, kayak with dolphins, learn to surf, trawl the markets, indulge in a day spa or simply explore the glorious beaches of the area.


DAY 6: Byron Bay to Lamington National Park

You finally cross the border into the sunshine state and in celebration of this you’ll be staying at the wonderful hinterland rainforest retreat known as O’Reillys. This family-owned resort offers expansive views of the western ranges, friendly guided activities, local wildlife and the famed tree top walk.  The sunset views from the bar are a great way to end the day. Top it off by sampling one of their delicious homemade pizzas with a cocktail on the deck.


DAY 7:  Depart Brisbane

Time for some last-minute sightseeing before the leisurely drive up to Brisbane later this afternoon. Return your rental car on arrival into Queensland’s capital city.
