Visit New South Wales North Coast
The North Coast region of New South Wales combines classic Aussie surf culture in coastal towns and old-world charm in small hinterland rainforest villages. With its subtropical climate, endless hidden surf breaks and mix of forests and farmlands, the area is one of outstanding natural beauty.
Coffs Harbour is a regional coastal city with nearby rainforests and banana plantations. The surrounding coastline area has a string of cosy coastal communities such as Red Rock and Sawtell with miles of empty, pristine beach breaks just waiting to be enjoyed.
Off the coast, the Solitary Islands Marine Park is the largest protected marine area in New South Wales and one of Australia's top scuba diving environments. The park's astonishing diversity of species is owed to the convergence of warm tropical currents and cooler southerly flows.
Byron Bay on the New South Wales North Coast is Australia's hippie heaven, famous for alternative living and stylish sophistication. Blessed with some of the country's most beautiful landscapes, popular activities include yoga, meditation and music festivals.
Byron has become a chic retreat for urban escapees, with international film and music stars regularly mixing with backpackers and the creatively inclined in the local pubs and cafes. Local landmark, the Cape Byron Lighthouse marks Australia's most easterly point and hand gliders can often be seen riding the thermals in the skies above it.
