Salt Water National Park

This quaint, coastal reserve east of Taree, offers so many different activities and stunning views ideal for people of all ages. It offers exciting, physical, aquatic activities like canoeing, kayaking, swimming and surfing. So if you’re a thrill seeker that fancies a go at true Australian, water adventures, this national park is the perfect place to visit.

If you’re here between August and November, you may get to see more than just fish, but whales too! Saltwater national park offers the perfect spot to look out to the ocean and hopefully see some whales dance along the waves – whilst you enjoy a sandwich!

Tuncurry rock pools

With so many magnificent beaches along the Barrington Coast, it’s hard to decide where to visit first. Who gets priority? Well with the beautiful white sands and blue waters of Wallis Lake seen here, it’s no surprise that Tuncurry rock pool is one of the most popular family beaches in the region.

The scenic yet convenient location is ideal as it avoids the bustling crowds but still offers practical town services such as a café, without ruining the natural landscape.

The beach offers natural rock pools for you to explore and relax in before braving the tidal surges and currents of the swimming area.

5 Islands Trail

If you’re more of an ‘on land’ type explorer, try the five islands trail at Saltwater national park. Experience the natural beauty of the coastal landscape as you trek into the forests of the park.

Rich in Aboriginal heritage, this walking trail has lots of important features to look out for as you fully immerse yourself in the local culture. Look out for sacred trees, middens and fish traps and get a hands-on, in-person education from the natural area itself.

This trail has systems of waterways which means you’ll experience rainforests, salt flats, sedges, wetlands and mangroves all in one walk.


An avid seafood lover? Then a stop at Colin Wren oysters is a must! An innovative, new age of growing single-seed Sydney Rock oysters. This fresh oyster farmer produces some of the best Wallis Lake has to offer.

Take a trip to try some of their freshly farmed oysters. Enjoy them plain or with all the trimmings and exciting flavoursome sides. Take a look out to the blue waters and see how the oysters are caught as you indulge in them.


In an ideal world, you’d spot hundreds of aquatic mammals on your trip to Australia. You’d look out onto the horizon and see a school of dolphins perform their own private show below the sunset. But sadly, that tends to not be the case. But there’s no reason why you shouldn’t see these brilliant creatures frolic in their natural habitat – you just may need a bit of assistance.

This is where Amaroo Cruises comes in. You can take a trip on one of their boats and sail out into the great blue. They offer dolphin cruises where they take you on your own dolphin-watching experience. Get up close and personal with these beautiful and playful creatures from the luxury of one of their boats.

They also offer lake cruises to take a tranquil trip around the pristine waters or even offer private hires for groups.

With so many adventures to be had, you want to be setting off as soon as you can! If you’re looking for a scenic, convenient accommodation for your coastal holiday, visit Mid Coast Holiday Accommodation Centre today.
