Travel in a very comfortable Land Rover Discovery 4x4 (maximum 4 people) to some of the most beautiful places on the Mid North Coast:
- Along 70km of coastline including the beaches between South West Rocks, Hat Head, Crescent Head and Port Macquarie.
- To various hinterland locations and mountain lookouts in the Upper Macleay Valley.
We can also guide you on coastal bushwalks around the headlands of South West Rocks, Hat Head and Crescent Head or through some of the fantastic mountainous country and rainforests of the Upper Macleay Valley hinterland.
Your guide Max Osborne (B. App. Sc.) will show you the sights and inform you about the local ecology. You will see and hear some of the information you won't find in any brochures.
Max is a keen fisherman, surfer, diver, bird watcher, bushwalker, and conservationist and is happy to share his knowledge with you.
We can also supply fishing, snorkelling, surfing, canoeing and mountain biking equipment if you need it.
If you want to go beach, estuary or fresh water Bass fishing, you do not need to buy a NSW DPI Recreational Fishing Permit as we have a permit that covers you for the day. Let us show you how to catch a fish.
Follow us in your own 4x4. We can teach you responsible 4WD beach driving and we carry recovery equipment if you get into dificulties.
We also offer a tour that travels via the bush tracks of the Upper Macleay and Nambucca Valley to visit wineries and 'bush pubs'. Have a beer at the infamous Pub With No Beer.
Flying into Port Macquarie or Coffs Harbour and need to get to South West Rocks, Hat Head, Crescent Head or another town in the Macleay Valley? How about an airport transfer with a difference? We will pick you up from the airport and take you to your accommodation via the beach or bush. A great way to start your holiday!
We will create a tour that suits your interests and needs.
