"The main attraction" Top 5 Page for this destination Far North Coast Tip by iandsmith

Far North Coast, Sydney: 1 reviews and 1 photos

  New day dawning at Mullaway
by iandsmith

Why people would want to look in Sydney pages for the Far North Coast is a mystery to me but, since VT have chosen to include it the main listings, obviously some people do!
Without doubt overseas tourists head for the beaches and, since I've been doing just that for over 50 years, far be it from me to suggest otherwise.
Most of my listings you will find under Coffs Harbour, Nelson Bay and Port Macquarie.
Having said that, if you want beaches you should consider being in your own car otherwise you will definitely miss the best of them.
Somewhat ironically, it is possible to get to the beach in the photo by public transport, but not very conveniently. It happens to be Mullaway and I have a house there.
Some places I highly recommend are Nelson Bay, south of Forster, South West Rocks, Arrawarra, Yamba and the Ballina to Byron Bay stretch.
