After some days in Sydney, we drove to Port Macquarie, a beach town hosting a Koala Hospital, a quick and free visit run by volunteers who rescue, treat and rehabilitate sick (and cute) koalas. Next on our list was Byron Bay, well-known for its relaxed atmosphere, surfing spots and lighthouse; the little coast town also offers pretty little rooftops restaurants and pubs with delightful food!
Welcome to the Sunshine State Mate! If you love little walks in the rainforest then Springbrook National Park is the place for you. If you would like to encounter Australia’s cutest animals (koalas, kangaroos, etc.) head to the Currumbin Wildlife Center or the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, where you can learn about the animals, encounter them, take photos and hand-feed the kangaroos and lorikeet. Fun guaranteed!
