Byron Bay to Port Macquarie Hot Spots

This your guide to road tripping the LESS travelled part of New South Wales. Most people skip between Byron Bay and Port Macquarie but there are some incredible gems to be discovered. Also how much it will cost, how much time to spend doing it and how to free camp.

We hope you enjoyed this video. Though our video guides are designed to provide further awareness into what it might be like to live in the state of New South Wales, we’re hopeful that this video will also help you to choose places to visit (or even call home) when living in Australia.

Have you visited Byron Bay, Port Macquarie or any of these Hot Spots before?

Have you visited any of the locations featured in our video before? What did you think? Would you go back? Could you live there?

We’d love to hear your views so please share these in our comments below.

Nelson bay dolphin cruise well worth it if going that way a net on the back too lie in the water too also great Grey nurse shark Dive evspot seal rocks would recommend in general in oz to go inland and even a bit out of main places some top spots an hr or more away from cairns for example in all directions

This is the best timing ever! I was planning to do this in two days. Question about Spot X; could you (or Hayden) tell me why their surf camp is not good? I’m an absolute beginner and I would like to know what is better than Spot X :)

I just commented on your other video about being in Melbourne 6 months ago, and on the same trip we went up the coast and I loved Port Macquarie, Coff’s Harbour, and Dorrigo! This video is making me so nostalgic!

Definitely planning a NSW road trip after watching this. I used to live just below Port Macquarie and never even knew about these amazing places

You spent 3 weeks exploring just 10% of the east coast, and people think they can see all of Australia in a week or 2. People need to realise how big this country is and allot an appropriate amount to time to explore it.

FYI great tip to get rid of leeches, carry a salt shaker. If you come across one, cover it in salt and it will release.

I am so glad you went to Yamba ! The best spot on the NSW coast in my opinion, there is a really sick town about 10 mins south called Angourie with world class surfing, cannot stress enough how amazing yamba and angourie are

I think shopping local should be a mindset that everyone should have for anywhere they are or for any place that they go to, I love hitting up local shops/boutiques/restaurants. I have found the best souvenirs come from locally owned small businesses.

I live a few hours inland from Sawtell/Dorrigo. I just finished my university degree & hearing you speak about getting back to nature & feeling like a child has made me decide to just go & explore! I've been meaning to do so for such a long time, I did the New England national park last month as it was close to my uni, so amazing!
