Nestled in between the crystal clear calm waters of Smiths Lake, the tropical lush rainforests of Booti Booti National Park, and the Tasman Sea’s sparkling blue ocean, you’ll discover the gem that is Pacific Palms. Whilst you could easily spend a week or two exploring the many un-spoilt beaches, sleepy coastal villages, beautiful lakes and national park sights that surround Pacific Palms, being just 3.5 hours north of Sydney it’s also very doable in a weekend. In 48 hours we managed to cram in 6 beaches, a lighthouse, a lake, NSW’s tallest tree, and countless local coffees.
Looking for a day trip that offers stunning views of one of Hawkesbury River’s most beautiful creeks, a peaceful waterside hiking trail where you don’t have to line up behind crowds of tourists, kayaking adventures, and picturesque cafes right on the waterfront, all within a stone’s throw from Sydney? Look no further than Berowra Waters.
If you’re considering a long weekend in Orange, don’t think twice. Just a 3 and a half hour scenic drive from Sydney and you’ll be in the beautiful rolling hills of Orange, lined with vineyards, orchards and up and coming restaurants. Autumn is the time to go – a beautiful filter of oranges, reds and yellows take over and create stunning countryside scenery to feast your eyes on.
