This part of the coast is just spectacular, and despite it raining whilst we were visiting it was still excellent viewing. The roughness of the waves made it even more spectacular.

The sandstone coast line is spectacular and visited by both Australian and overseas visitors. There are many highlights along the coast - Bay of Islands, Loch Ard Gorge, 12 Apostles, London Bridge, The Grotto and many other sights.

Need peace n quiet, travel early not during school holidays. Check before travelling, plan ahead. Take a picnic you might feel hungry before you hit the next town for a meal.

The views at the Bay of Islands are some of the best I have seen. The walking tracks are quite easy and there are great viewing points from all around the area. Well worth seeing

I would pack a Rain Coat as early September , there is the usual spring rain, and it may be windy and chilly so a warm jacket would be needed
