Still heading North
Back on the road, heading for Honeycomb Valley Farm at Nabiac and more exciting surprises.
The village of Nabiac is situated on the Wallamba River, 24 kilometres south of Taree and 25 kilometres west of Forster/Tuncurry.
Nabiac services the surrounding communities of Wootton, Failford, Rainbow Flat, Dyers Crossing, Krambach and Coolongolook.
Nabiac means ‘place of the wild fig’ and lies between lands once inhabited by the Biripi and Worimi Aboriginal Tribes.
Honeycomb Valley Farm, owned and run by Anna and Andrew Campbell is a place where you can stretch your legs and your mind! This sustainable farm’s motto is “little farm, big picture”. Visit the unique farm-gate shop where you can buy fresh produce, raw honey, sun-baked treats, farm-made balms and goat’s milk soaps. Meet gorgeous farm animals, wander the fascinating ethnobotanical (useful plant) garden and see the biggest solar oven in Australia. They welcome bus groups and their honey tasting bar is a must do for anyone who loves honey and sweet things!
We just loved the ‘Bee Motel’ and the newly born animals.

The topography of the area is very diverse including sand dunes, coastal wetlands, flood plains, forests and mountain regions.
The area enjoys the best climate in Australia, with the average temperature ranging from 7°C to 27°C.
The main towns within the Greater Port Macquarie region are Port Macquarie, Wauchope, Laurieton, North Haven, Dunbogan, Comboyne, Kendall, Kew, Bonny Hills and Lake Cathie.
We allocated two nights and two and a half days to experience Port and after our first look around we realise that we could easily spend more than a week.
Wow! We can’t believe how great the holiday and tourism scene is. See the tourism video below.***
