This Easter, come with us on a magical journey filled with scenic delights and natural wonders. Whoever said life was all about the journey must have been travelling the Waterfall Way. Driving this stunning route is like touring through a giant pop-up book, turn one corner and an enormous mountain range jumps out of a green valley, turn another and a waterfall leaps out at the road before your very eyes. Spend time at the Dorrigo National Park where ‘the mountains reach the sky’ and if you’ve ever wanted to take a walk in the heavens (or with the birds) this is the place. Based for four nights in beautiful Coffs Harbour, each day branch out to explore the scenic coastline from Coffs Harbour to South West Rocks. The Waterfall Way and the surrounding areas show nature at her creative best, so if you are looking for a relaxing holiday ‘with a view’ join us this Easter and experience all the delights the area has to offer.
