inland to the coast

We recently spent some time in Northern NSW. To us this really one of the most naturally beautiful parts of Australia. From the hinterland of rolling green hills, to the big rivers of the northern tablelands to the quiet pristine beaches of the coast there is a whole lot to love. If money grew on trees and industry was booming in this region we would most certainly base ourselves there in a heartbeat. It has the best of all worlds colliding in one spot.

The Tenterfield region is full of history and scenic beyond words. We enjoyed a quiet campsite out at Boonoo National Park, 27km from Tenterfield. It is right on the Boonoo Boonoo River and with plenty of rock pools for swimming and bush walks throughout the granite scattered landscape there is heaps to enjoy. The national park is also home to the spectacular Boonoo Boonoo Falls which are well worth the short walk to view them.

The Tweed region south of the Gold Coast is a diverse and naturally beautiful place to visit and explore. From the Tweed Coast to the Tweed Valley and every where in between there is plenty to see and do. Our favourites include boating and fishing along the Tweed River, winding our way through the scenic valley roads, relaxing on the beach at Fingal and dining at the cafes of Kingscliff.

If you haven’t been before make sure you add Northern NSW to your bucket list. If you have been we would love to hear from you? Please share your favourites of Tweed Region with us.

  1. I spent 11 of the earliest years of my life growing up in North-East NSW and love every part of it. Evans Head holds special childhood memories (although I suspect from a touristy point of view would not be first on many people’s lists). Mt Warning is definitely worth at least one climb. One thing that really hits me returning as an adult though is the size of the mighty rivers in the area, you just do not find them that big and beautiful down this way – although of course a river inundated with just melted snow has its own special charm.

    1. Oh what a great place to grow up. Yes, climbing Mt Warning is on the list for sure. Everywhere in Australia has its only special charm 🙂

    1. Oh fantastic. You will love it. Please share with us your adventures at Boonoo Boonoo! There is a place near there called Black Stump which is worth a look as well.
