Coastal and Aquatic Trail

The Legendary Pacific Coast is a coastal and aquatic paradise, embracing pristine beaches, crystal clear oceans, mighty rivers, expansive lakes, bubbling brooks and stunning waterfalls.

The moderate climate and generous rainfall ensure nature thrives across the coast and hinterland of this leading touring route from Sydney to Brisbane.

Plummeting waterfalls, some of the largest rivers in the state, some of Australia’s best surf breaks and dive spots all form a rich environment brimming with adventurous experiences that lift and challenge mind, body and soul.

Sensitive tourism operators aid the discovery with gentle canoe tours through massive inland waterways where the flutter of wings from a flock of ducks crash through the silence like a racing train, gliding black swans preen their elegant wings and dragonflies with gossamer wings flutter from the water to trees.

Kayaks plough over white crested waves at the tip of Byron and Port Macquarie, hurtle between rocks down Coffs and Clarence River canyons or glide serenely across glimmering Myall lakes.

Boats large and small are easily available for rental.  Be spoilt on a day or evening cruise to spot dolphins in the blue Forster waters or marvel at the site of a whale and its calves migrating along the coast throughout May to September.

Or simply grab a book, a hat and towel and wile away hours on an uncrowded beach listening to the breaking waves.
