Private Tour taking you to the Best Lookouts and Short Walks on Both Coasts


I will take you to all the beautiful advantage points along the coast where the locals like to spend much of their leisure time. You will also get to see some of the small relaxed villages of Northern NSW.

This tour can be modified depending how active you wish to be, allowing opportunities to take short walks on many of the advantage point stops. All walks are less than 4 kms long. The bonus is during the months of June through to October hundreds of whales pass this coastline and there is a high chance of sighting whales from all these advantage points.
