Unique, authentic experiences such as a stay in Barrington Tops National Park and a river retreat are combined with well-known highlights such as wine tasting in Hunter Valley and chill time in Byron. The tour is fully guided by your local expert Stray Guide, who will help you with everything, from booking hostels and activities, to fun things to do and the best eats in each location.

What You'll Get

Itinerary

Day 1: Sydney to Barrington Tops

Stop At: Barrington Tops National Park, New South Wales Australia
We depart the big city of Sydney early this morning and head to the Hunter Valley wine region for a tasting at an award-winning vineyard. From there, we carry on through the backcountry to our first stunning Strademark stop right on the edge of the World Heritage-listed Barrington Tops National Park. At our Stray exclusive accommodation overlooking the Barrington River, you can choose to go river tubing on the mild rapids, or play table tennis o4 pool at the lodge. Finish the day with a shared group dinner and a few drinks around the campfire.

Day 2: Barrington Tops to Spot X

Stop At: Spot X Surf, 46 Arrawarra Beach Rd, Arrawarra NSW 2456, Australia
We depart after breakfast and journey north through the remote countryside back towards the coast. Our next stop is the Port Macquarie Koala Hospital, where you can get a closer look at Australia’s laziest (and arguably cutest) marsupials. Check out the information centre to learn all about the hospital’s efforts to rehabilitate, protect and preserve the koalas. After this, we head to Emerald Beach, an iconic kangaroo hangout, where if you’re lucky you can spot them hopping along the beach. We arrive at our beachfront overnight stop Spot X in the early evening.

Day 3: Spot X to River Retreat

Stop At: Nymboida, Nymboida, New South Wales
The morning at Spot X is all yours. Learn to surf in some of the best beginner waves in Australia, or for those who already know how to 'hang 10,' rent a board and show us what you can do! We recommend staying longer to do a Surf & Stay if you are keen to really hone your surf skills. You can also swim and chill out on the beach or sink into a hammock at the camp. We depart around midday, grabbing a bite to eat in town before travelling to our relaxing, rural River Retreat. Spend the afternoon on a guided canoe trip down the Nymboida River to learn about the area, which is home to amazing birds, snakes, and the incredibly shy platypus, and unwind with a refreshing dip in the river. This evening, we’ll gather round a bonfire and sleep in wilderness cabins or tents beneath the stars.

Day 4: River Retreat to Byron Bay

Stop At: Byron Bay, Byron Bay, Byron Shire, New South Wales
Next up - Byron Bay, known as the most chilled out town in Australia! On the way there, we stop in the picturesque seaside town of Yamba for lunch. We'll also visit the Angourie Blue Pool, an old quarry that was accidentally (and awesomely) filled by an underground spring, meaning you can now cool off in an epic fresh water pool right on the beach! Upon arriving in Byron Bay, we’ll take you on an orientation drive around town to help you get your bearings, showing you the points of interest and the top spots for food, shopping and nightlife.
