Situated on the lower mid north coast of New South Wales Australia, the Barrington Coast is an easy 2 hour drive north of Sydney. You can also get here by train, plane and coach. We look forward to welcoming you to our diverse and beautiful destination.

By Car

The Pacific Highways runs through the Barrington Coast linking Sydney to Brisbane. The journey by car is about 2 hours drive from Sydney's M1 Motorway entrance to our southern gateway at Tea Gardens. It's even less from the Central Coast and Newcastle. Add another hour and you'll find yourself in Pacific Palms, Forster, Tuncurry or Gloucester. Taree is about one hour south of Port Macquarie and if you're coming from Tamworth or Armidale down Thunderbolts Way it's less than 3 hours drive to our western gateway at Gloucester.

By Train

The North Coast Railway runs through the Barrington Coast linking Sydney to Brisbane. XPT trains to Brisbane, Grafton and Casino stop daily in both directions at Gloucester, Wingham and Taree.
