We have now travelled from coast to coast and have clocked up 8,000 kms in doing so. We are on the Mid North Coast of NSW and are amazed at how many large rivers flow into the Pacific Ocean. The Great Dividing Range is the start of these rivers – we have seen the Bellinger, Kalang, Nambucca, Macleay and Manning – all winding their way down creating beautiful valleys before reaching the ocean.
The coastline is really beautiful with its sometimes ruggered headlands and lovely beaches.
Keen fishermen hope for a good catch on the tides.
Seagulls are ever present. He only threw one chip!
Standing on a granite headland the Smoky Cape Lighthouse near South West Rocks guides ships and boats safely past the area. When we visited we could see whales breaching off in the distance.
It really is a beautiful coast – but I do miss the white sandy beaches of WA.
