Sydney to Gold Coast Road Trip

At the start of January, I did a four day road trip from Sydney to the Gold Coast.

We drove up the Pacific Highway over two days (staying overnight at Grafton), spent a day in the Gold Coast, and then drove back to Sydney via the New England Highway in one very long day.

NSW Road Trips

During 2020 and 2021 when NSW wasn’t in lockdown, I did a number of Road Trips. All three of these ended up in Central West NSW some way or another, but a few of them also ended up on the Mid North Coast as well.

I have a habit of following my nose, so it wasn’t surprising to end up on Roads that looked like the following two photos.

On the Mid North Coast, we spent time around Tea Gardens and Hawks Nest.

While in the Central West we spent time around Bathurst, Orange, Parkes, Dubbo and Mudgee.

We did a few visits to Western Plains Zoo as well.

Sydney to Melbourne Road Trip

During the 2021 Christmas Break, I headed on a road trip from Sydney to Melbourne.

To get to Melbourne we followed the Princes Highway along the coast of NSW and Victoria.

To get back to Sydney we drove up the inland Hume Highway.

Along the way we visited many small towns and enjoyed our first trip out of NSW in two years.

In late February I went with some mates up to Wisemans Ferry for a drive and a very short walk. Our original plan was continue along Wisemans Ferry Road through to the M1 but this was thwarted by a lack of time that day. Last Saturday we completed the trip by starting at the other end and travelling into Wisemans Ferry via Mooney Mooney and Peats Ridge.

Below is a set of photos from the two trips.

Perth to Geraldton Roadtrip

While we were in Perth we spent two days travelling on a quick two day road trip up the coast to Geraldton.

On the trip up we stuck to the coast and drove up Indian Ocean Drive, and we returned via Highway 1.

As the photos below show we stopped at many cool and random places and had a great time.

Road Trip – Photos 5 – Port Macquarie to Sydney, Roads and Beaches

The final day of our road trip was spent travelling from Port Macquarie to Sydney via a detour to Foster and Newcastle. Pretty much unless you are in your 90s, death and blind don’t visit Port Macquarie there are only two pubs and you can’t go to the beach at night. Foster and the beaches around it on the other hand appeared much more appealing and would be certainly be worthwhile investigating. The drive into Sydney is spectacular as well.
