LOCATION: KEMPSEY, NEW SOUTH WALES
This part of the North Coast of NSW has lovely beaches, stunning national parks to explore and plenty of things to do, fishing and watersports are but of a few.
Kangaroo Valley is just west from the South Coast and considered a good place to spot the variety of colourful birdlife and Australian wildlife within the hilly surrounding forests and bushland.
The The Kempsey Museum and Tourist Information Centre is an excellent place to start, providing information for accommodation, recreation, dining and places of interest.
The museum itself is an attraction, the building was designed by Glenn Murcutt as a truly Australian creation.
