Lightning Ridge, NSW: Black opal town

Lightning Ridge

Situated 720km northwest of Sydney and 750km southwest of Brisbane, the evocatively named Lightning Ridge is a must-see location. It is by a long way the richest mining spot along the black opal belt that stretches up through southwest Queensland. Lightning Ridge is a mining town, scrub filled, littered with eerie metal relics and flecked with the black glitter that makes it famous.

If you can locate a patch of land not marked as taken, you are welcome to fossick and just might take something home for your troubles. If you happen to want a break from the dirt, you can wash off in the town’s own thermal springs which heat up to 40°C. When the night closes in, you can experience some not-to-be-missed outback theatre at the Black Queen.

Seal Rocks, NSW: peace in the shape of a campground

Seal Rocks

This serene spot, set to the music of birdsong and the rush of waves, will please even the pickiest of travelers. A beach holiday is an iconic Australian experience: sand, surf, baits and beers. Seal Rocks offers stellar examples of all of the above just three hours drive from Sydney. Between the four beaches and the national park, there is more than enough to keep you occupied.

Seal Rocks offers two campgrounds: Seal Rocks Holiday Park and Treachery Camp. Seal Rocks, situated near the small town, boasts powered sites and is favoured by families and caravaners. Treachery Camp, an enormous private campground located in Myall Lakes National Park boasts private sites and a few private cabins.

Coffs Harbour, NSW: history meets relaxation

Coffs Harbour

Moonee Beach Holiday Park, in Coffs Harbour is the perfect combination of relaxing retreat and home base from which to explore the local sights. At 1km from the Pacific Highway, and 10-minutes drive south from the closest main town in Coffs Harbour, this caravan park is easy to get to, but hidden just enough to ensure serenity.

Nearby, there is a magnificent tidal lagoon which gives way to the Pacific Ocean, and an unbelievable number of reserves and national parks. You can even do a spot of whale watching if you’ve picked your seasons right, at the headland called Look At Me Now.

For history buffs, there are five offshore islands each named by Captain Cook, and the Solitary Island Lighthouse which was the first and last lighthouse to use a kerosene lamp. You can’t visit the lighthouse, but you can visit the lamp and plenty more interesting exhibits at the Coffs Harbour Museum.

Moonee Beach Holiday Park is slowly being brought up to date, with enough care from the NSW Lands Department to ensure that along with the added comfort, it retains its character and charm.
