Take the Armidale Road South from Grafton for approximately 6kms. Turn left onto Orara Way (Summerland Way) and follow for approximately 38kms to Glenreagh. Situated in the Orara Valley alongside the tranquil Orara River, Glenreagh is overlooked by magnificent sandstone ranges, much of which is State Forest. Why not stop for a picnic or bbq at Shannon Park on the banks of the river or stop in at the Golden Dog Hotel and enjoy the local hospitality.

Continue on the Summerland Way, for proximately 12km to the small village of Nana Glen and the Two Tails Winery where you are able to sample their selection of wines at the cellar door and eat your packed lunch in the gardens or the nearby café. After leaving continue for a further 10kms to the village of Coramba and a further 17kms to Coffs Harbour.
