Scenic rivers at Mylestom and Urunga


Mylestom Drive Repton NSW 2454



Turn off the Pacific Highway and take Mylestom Drive, which runs from Repton right along the Bellinger River, and continue all the way to the end to get to North Beach with its viewing platform, boat shed and Surf Club.

4WD vehicles can access the beach south of the Surf Club and drive to the river mouth opposite Urunga Heads.
 
Get some fish & chips or drinks from the general store in Mylestom and enjoy a picnic at one of the many picnic tables along the stunning, deep-blue Bellinger River. 

Stay off the busy highway, continue along the river towards Raleigh. Follow the signposts to Raleigh Winery, Australia’s most easterly vineyard, and sample a fine selection of wines and brandy cremes. Visit the collectable shop that is full of wonderful goodies.

From Raleigh, either get back onto the Pacific Highway and drive further south to Urunga or alternatively, take a scenic little detour along the river. There are lots of fishing spots along the way. Yellow Rock Road  follows the river and takes you past farm lands. This will take you back to the Pacific Highway just north of Urunga – the place 'where the rivers meet the sea'.
 
Turn right at the Urunga Visitor Information Centre towards the town centre. The road loops back towards the river, where you can park your car at Joy Mitchell Park and have a wander around the waterfront and boat ramp. Relax while enjoying some food or a drink at the Anchors Wharf Café in a wonderful location right on the beautiful Kalang River.
 
Follow the road (signposted Tourist Drive 16) into town and park somewhere around the Ocean View Hotel (1927), which has a restaurant and a beer garden. Boardwalk Café, next to the Star Supermarket, is a charming little café and takeaway. There are delicious Fish and Chips just up the road and Pomegranate Cafe just around the corner is a gourmet delight. Magnificent Morgo Street Reserve is immaculate and has picnic tables and free gas BBQ's for you to enjoy. A must-see is the nearby Urunga Boardwalk - an amazing 700m raised boardwalk through the mangroves of the river estuary out to the breakwall and beach. It is just at the front of the Reflections Holiday Parks Urunga Heads.

Head south on the Pacific Highway a short way and you will reach The Honey Place on your right hand side, which is definitely worth a stop.   You’ll recognise it by the big yellow replica of a beehive around the entrance of the building. Here you can taste different varieties of honey, see a real beehive at work, enjoy an afternoon tea, visit the fern nursery and doll collection and browse around the souvenir shop.
