  Australia doesn't get much better than this
by iandsmith

There are certain roads in Australia. They are on the east coast and they travel from the coast to the top of the Great Dividing Range. En route they pass through, in my opinion, some of the most stunningly beautiful scenery Australia has to offer.
Sadly, few international tourists gravitate onto these roads. Instead, lured by beaches they've only ever seen on brochures, they hug the coast. While I'm not knocking that activity, I am suggesting that you tarry awhile inland where you will come across scenes such as this on the Wauchope - Walcha Road. This route also passes by Tia and Apsley Falls, also included in these pages.
If this has appeal then don't miss it. There's about a dozen such roads and all of them have something to offer.
As a day trip out of Port Macquarie or a route to take you over the Great Divide, this road has a lot to offer.
