Day 1
Sydney to the Hunter Valley
Be sure to spend as much time as you can in Sydney before starting your journey. Visit the harbour, with its famous Sydney Opera House and coat hanger bridge, before picking up your rental car either at Sydney Airport or the city depot and beginning your tour. Leave the city and drive to the beautiful Hunter Valley wine growing region where you stay at the Hunter Valley Resort.

Day 2
Hunter Valley to Port Stephens
Leave the Hunter Valley and travel northeast to Port Stephens. Known as the Blue Water Wonderland, Port Stephens is a natural bay 2 1/2 times the size of Sydney Harbour and almost enclosed by two dormant volcanic headlands. There is fabulous seafood and over 26 golden sandy beaches to explore. Perhaps take an afternoon cruise to see the Bottlenose dolphins.

Day 3
Port Stephens to Coffs Harbour
Depart Port Stephens and continue north to Bulahdelah, the entrance to the Myall Lakes National Park. Travel north along the Lakes Way, a scenic route through rainforest with spectacular views of the inland lakes and ocean beaches. Travel on through the Manning Valley and Taree to Port Macquarie. Continue on to Coffs Harbour, which is the start of the sub-tropical northern coast of New South Wales and the surrounding district produces timber, bananas, vegetables, dairy products and fish. The ‘Big Banana’ is open daily with a comprehensive display on the banana industry.

Day 4
Coffs Harbour to Byron Bay
Today you leave Coffs Harbour via South Grafton and Maclean. At Maclean, an interesting detour to take is to join the coast road to Yamba, which is a scenic and popular surfing beach and fishing resort. Later rejoin the Pacific Highway back at Maclean, travel through the town of Woodburn to Ballina. At Ballina, again leave the Pacific Highway and drive along the picturesque coast road through the pretty resort town of Lennox Head, to reach Byron Bay, where you stay tonight.

Day 5
Byron Bay
Today is free to spend at your leisure. Enjoy the restaurants and cafes, take a surfing lesson or simply relax on the beach. For those who may have an extra day on their hands, we recommend an additional night’s stay at Byron Bay.
tour image
Day 6
Byron Bay to Brisbane
For early risers, it’s well worth going a trip to the beach this morning to watch the sunrise over the Pacific Ocean. From here, travellers can easily fly back to Sydney on Qantas' domestic network to continue their trip.
