Dotted throughout the rolling green hills, mountain tops and river side locations of the Mid North Coast are many postcard perfect villages just waiting to be discovered. These villages and townships have a timeless serenity, each community with their own character reflecting the local landscape and heritage that provides their sense of place, but for some there is also a very obvious creative soul. So why not take what is often just a short pleasant drive from the Pacific Highway or major destinations to find both a wide range of scenic and cultural experiences.
