Nothern Rivers Village Life
One of the real highlights of exploring the Northern Rivers is discovering all the quaint and quirky villages that are so much a part of the region's character.
Travelling along the Tweed coast, you'll find a string of holiday villages like Kingscliff, Pottsville and Cabarita lining miles of deserted beaches. Further south, you can still find untouched seaside hideaways like Wooli, Sandon, Brooms Head, Iluka, and Evans Head, and at Yamba, you'll find one of Australia 's most awarded caravan parks - the Blue Dolphin Holiday Resort - as well as a range of great restaurants and clubs.
Driving the inland roads, you'll feel like you're tootling around the English countryside as you explore tiny villages like Clunes, Eltham, Bexhill and Dunoon, or you can sample the truly eccentric at towns like Nimbin. Around the base of Mt Warning, arts and crafts thrive in towns like Uki and Stoker's Siding or you can capture the rural magic, heading up into the mountains to Crystal Creek.
Country pubs are always a great excuse to stop. At places like Rappville, The Channon, Bangalow and Brunswick , you'll really get into the local lifestyle, while almost every township has it's share of great little cafes.
