Hinterland

It's everything you are

the great lakes hinterland is a landscape full of natural treasures, secret spots, fresh farm produce and country hospitality

Beyond the coast lies a lush green region rich in history, agriculture and country atmosphere. The townships of Stroud, Bulahdelah, Wootton, Coolongolook and Nabiac reflect the unique personality of our hinterland. Cafés, eco-retreats, boutique wineries, quirky antique shops, country markets and fascinating flora and fauna combine with rolling green fields, farm gates and forests of flooded gums.
 
Nestled on the banks of the Myall River, at the foot of the rugged Alum Mountain is Bulahdelah – the gateway to the Myall Lakes. Right in the heart of the Great Lakes this township has a variety of experiences on offer including the tallest tree in NSW. 
 
Further into the hinterland, along Thunderbolts Way, is the historical township of Stroud. There are over 30 heritage buildings and it was Australia’s first company town founded in 1826. It is an irresistible mix of country charm, modern café culture and Australian history.
