Australia: Hidden Waterfall Trail of New South Wales

Travelling South by car or campervan from Byron Bay to Sydney on the East coast of New South Wales gives you the chance to breath in the fresh ocean air and watch the incoming waves. If you are lucky with the weather, you can take your surfboard out and catch a couple of waves on one of the beautiful beaches around Coffs Harbour. One of our many stops was the town of Port Macquarie. We decided to stay the night at a locally owned Airbnb and discover the town that has been booming over the last 10 years and is becoming a blossoming city.

A Day in Port Macquarie: On and Off the Beaten Path

Though Port Macquarie locals occasionally loath to admit such a thing, tourists are basically the wellspring of life that fuels the economy of this beautiful seaside town; and it is in light of this that I should begin by saying that the well-worn tourist path is not something which I speak of with disdain or distaste. I myself was once a foreigner in Port Macquarie, pronouncing Wauchope and Lake Cathie – as a simpleton would – exactly as they are spelled. And though I didn’t live there long enough to be considered a local (apparently 20 years is the jackpot – 16 more years would have done me the trick), what I experienced was what I would consider to be a truly marvellous and blessed four years, full of exploration, adventure, cloudless skies, starry nights, waterfalls, swimming holes, a seemingly infinite number of beaches, incredible coffee, and a sense of community like no other.
