What makes the North Coast of New South Wales such a great holiday destination?

For a start there's the region's year-round temperate climate and spectacular coastline, which means plenty of opportunity to surf, swim or just relax under the beach umbrella.

The fishing's not bad, either. Nor is the selection of casinos or watersports: kayaking, water skiing, jet boating and parasailing to name a few.

Discover the hinterland's network of historic villages and townships, its diverse and meandering river systems, and World Heritage listed rainforest and wilderness. Watch the annual whale migration from one of the many vantage points between Port Stephens and Coffs Harbour or cruise with the dolphins all year round; savour the local seafood and wine;
embrace an ancient eucalypt; play a local pokie such as Where is the Gold; smell the coffee; wake to the sound of the Pacific.

These are the joys of North Coast New South Wales.
