Strap your surfboards to the car and cruise down the 575 mile road that connects Sydney to Brisbane, along the north coast of New South Wales. It’s one way you can surf at such legendary spots along the Gold Coast, Byron Bay, Yamba, Coffs Harbour, Port Macquarie, and Newcastle.
If the surf is flat, head inland to go bushwalking. The Gold Coast has some of the most amazing scenery with three national parks to choose from, including the lush sub-tropical rainforest of Tamborine Mountain. There are another 48 national parks between Sydney and Brisbane to explore.
Stop off a Port Stephens for some world-class snorkelling and dolphin spotting, sip beer in Coffs Harbour and camp out at Tweed Heads before jumping in the sea for a dawnie the next morning.
