Christmas & New Years in NSW :: Coast, city & country

What a great end to the year! We drove down to Sydney from Brisbane popping into Byron Bay, Yamba (staying at the riverside Moby Dick Motel) and Dorrigo National Park before finally basing ourselves for Christmas in a lovely cottage called Japara Lodge in Coomba Park overlooking Forster-Tuncurry. We were also ever so lucky in that we managed to escape all the rain.

Our New Years Eve was a few days in Sydney followed by a drive back via the New England Highway and a spot of wine tasting in Stanthorpe. It was nice to see much more of the NSW country side.

I still have some traveling to do as I will still be on holiday for a few more weeks but will keep an eye on all your posts. 

Hope you are having a great start to 2011. Have fun. Lisa
