The national parks, beautiful waterholes and beaches, and a sprinkle of the unknown on this journey certainly turned it into another amazing Aussie adventure and although not quite off the beaten track as we would like, it is certainly a coastline worth exploring.
Over the next few weeks we will travel over 2,500-kilometres of tarmac along and the Pacific Coast Way, a highway that connects Coolangatta and Cairns.
The iconic east coast road trip from Sydney to Brisbane we were about to undertake, is known as the Legendary Pacific Coast, and is one of Australia’s top road trips.
Stretching 900-kilometres along the Pacific Coast, it takes in the Central Coast, Hunter, Mid North Coast and Northern Rivers, and has something for everyone around every turn… beautiful beaches, green rolling hills, beachside towns, riverside towns, wineries, historic sites and hinterland.
A fresh ocean breeze, the golden warmth of the sun, the soothing sound of the waves breaking against the shore… it’s no wonder us Aussies love the beach so much!
East of Broken Hill as the land flattened out, the straight stretch of road seemed longer, and the sun seemed to beat down more fiercely.
There is nothing more beautiful than a sunset over the dusty vastness of the flat, treeless plains that seem to stretch on forever.
It felt like we were on the edge of the world as we drank a toast to the setting sun!
