Nestled between three National Parks is the pretty village of Hannam Vale, which is free from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
Within this tiny valley of rolling green pastures fed by rich volcanic soils (drought proof) you'll find rainforest, waterfalls & swimming holes, 2WD easily-accessed mountain peaks & volcanic plugs which lead to sweeping vistas that rival Katoomba ... over Lansdowne, Comboyne, Taree and out to the coast. Plus thousands of acres of National Parks & State forests.
Short drives (5-20 minutes) will take you surfing at a Top 20 beach, swimming under a waterfall and in the afternoon milk a cow at an organic dairy farm tour. Visit the local General Store for refreshments, directions and a good ole country chat.
Over the summer months, you can pick up some of the juiciest berries straight from the fields of the local berry farm.
Hannam Vale is also the entry point for Coorabkah National Park.
Fun fact: Hannam Vale was the dairy capital of NSW 3 years ago when the highly successful "Farmers Own" brand of Woolworths milk was conceived, launched and is still owned by some of our best valley dairy farmers. All this from a gorgeous hidden gem of the Barrington Coast.
