Day 2 - Byron Bay, Lighthouse walk and more (Breakfast)
Following breakfast we welcome you to New South Wales and head to the famous hippie town of Byron Bay where your guide will take you on a town tour including a walk up to the famous lighthouse. You will have most of the day to take in the relaxed vibe here before driving into our Spot X beachfront surf camp for the night. Our surf camp is on the Coffs Coast – where the Great Dividing Range meets the ocean and is an amazing place.
Day 3 - Koala hospital, Surf Lesson and more (Breakfast and Dinner)
For those who have chosen to try their hand at ‘hanging ten’ with an optional surf lesson you will participate this morning. If you would rather watch the waves (and the new surfers) roll in, then laze about our beachside accommodation or walk along the beach. Following the lesson our journey continues South to the beautiful coastal seaside town of Port Macquarie where we visit the Koala Hospital. Overnight in Port Macquarie.
Day 4 - Port Stephens Wild Dolphin Cruise and Blue Mountains
Today we focus on more of the coastal areas that have made NSW a holiday getaway for Sydney-siders for the past century. We firstly travel to Port Stephens to witness the largest sand dune system in Australia. The bay here also happens to have over 80 resident dolphins, so we have included a 1.5 hour dolphin cruise which has 99% chance of seeing dolphins in the wild. After lunch we then travel onto Katoomba in the heart of the Blue Mountains to prepare for our next day of activity.
Day 5 - Blue Mountains, Sydney and more (Breakfast and Dinner)
In the morning it’s on to one of New South Wales’ most picturesque destinations, the World Heritage Blue Mountains. Home to the famous Three Sisters rock formations your guide will take you on a walk down from the lookout to witness the vast land around you. In the afternoon we make our way to the city many consider Australia’s real capital, Sydney.
Day 6 - Sydney Harbour Cruise, Harbour Bridge and Opera House
What better way to finish your tour than by cruising past the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge on a Sydney Harbour cruise. A perfect way to relax and wrap up the past 6 days of your East Coast Adventure.
