Tourist Drive 8 is a beautiful drive that meanders through some of the most lush and fertile land on the Mid North Coast.
Along the way: Bent On Food, Wingham Brush, Wingham Museum, Ellenborough Falls, Timbertown.
From Taree you will head to the historic township of Wingham where you’ll discover 10 ha of subtropical flood plain rainforest at Wingham Brush. Stroll along a gently winding boardwalk, spot flying foxes and admire the giant Moreton Bay figs. Enjoy the Wingham Museum, lunch at a local café and some retail therapy at the local boutique stores.
From Wingham, follow the tourist signs to Ellenborough Falls, where you will pass through the quaint village of Bobin. At 200 metres, Ellenborough Falls is one of the longest single drop waterfalls in the Southern Hemisphere with great views from the top or for the more adventurous, the walk down the 641 steps to the bottom!
Once you’re done admiring the falls, your next stop is Comboyne, a gorgeous village with lush country views. Be sure to pick up some cheese and check out the quirky local café! Continue through the village and the road will lead you to Wauchope, which is home to Timbertown. Make sure you stop, check it out and take a step back in time.
