Navigating the NSW Coast


After the madness of Nimbin we thought we would go off the beaten track and explore some of the NSW coast line that we had never been to.

We had originally planned to go to South West Rocks until Mike found a small place further down called Hat Head.  Now with a funky name like that we couldn't miss this out and oh boy were we surprised.






Driving into the town it was pretty quiet, cute little houses but not much else.  We pulled up and made our way over to the beach.



The beach sprawled out either side for miles.  We made our way around and found a little piece of paradise nestled away.



Turquoise waters and soft white sand, it was the ideal for a spot of swimming and relaxing.  NSW has some of the most beautiful beaches and scenery which we are so lucky to have on our door step.






After spending a few hours there we made our way onto our next stop, Port Macquarie.








The day was drawing on and we needed to find a place to came for the night.  We had been recommended Seal Rocks by many friends and thought this would be the best place to make camp.



We drove down a long dirt track into the national park and chose our spot amongst the trees and right next to this impressive sand dune.




After being stuck in the car for a long time the moment we parked I flew out of the car and raced up the dune to go exploring leaving poor Mike to put up the tent.


The sound of the waves crashing grew louder the closer I got, then I was greeted with this most beautiful view.




We pretty much had the whole beach to ourselves.  Mike appeared and we made our way back for some food.




In true fashion with it being one of our last nights camping the temperature dropped pretty quickly and the wind begun to pick up.  We packed everything up and ducked inside the tent.



All night the wind howled and shock the tent.  We knew this was going to be a long sleepless night.
