    The Great Lakes is one of the countrys biggest adventure playgrounds and its breathtaking, in more ways than one.

    your own patch of sand miles away from the crowds... a visit to a winery where you can spend the afternoon chatting direct with the grower... taking the boat out and having lunch on your own island... paddling across a pristine lake to a secret swimming spot... mountain biking through ancient forests... lying awake at night hearing nothing but the sound of the water!

    On the Mid North Coast, less than 3 hours from Sydney, you will find all this and more in the Great Lakes. This is where the magnificent eastern dividing range forms a backdrop to one of the most dazzling stretches of coast you will ever see. The Great Lakes is a region full of unique and memorable experiences and a space where you can find a great adventure.

    With its 145 kilometres of stunning coastline and glittering mosaic of crystal clear inland waterways based around the impressive Wallis, Smiths and Myall lakes networks the Great Lakes is a water playground.

    Throughout the region you can experience natures varied moods, from wide expanses of sub tropical forests to the tranquillity of a deserted beach during a brilliant sunset. Secluded bays and exciting surf beaches, stunning coastal landscapes and historic hinterland combine to make the Great Lakes the perfect destination.

    There is no shortage of things to do catering for all ages. Swimming, golf, sailing, kayaking, trekking, fishing, diving, mountain biking, amusement parks, unique shopping, clubs, fine dining, markets and numerous events are but a few of the experiences that await the visitor. The Great Lakes has all you need to create memories that will last a lifetime.

    Choose your own destination and choose your own pace. You can base yourself anywhere... Forster/Tuncurry, Tea Gardens/Hawks Nest, Pacific Palms, Bulahdelah or the many secluded retreats scattered through the hinterland.

    Life is about great experiences, so get amongst it!
