This 2 ½ hour drive begins on the east coast at Coffs Harbour and snakes it’s way inland through Bellingen and Dorrigo, ending in Armidale. Along the way there is plenty of cafes, local produce markets and national parks. There are multiple “high spots” which offer great viewing of breathtaking waterfalls.
