Day 2: Hunter Valley and Newcastle (Sunday): We leave behind Sydney's skyscrapers and sidewalks for a wildlife park boasting an all-star cast of koalas, kangaroos, and more guided by our own personal wildlife ranger. We're in the heart of the Hunter Valley, so there's nothing better than to take a wine, cheese, chocolate and organic vodka tasting tour. We'll also visit the sunny port city Newcastle, rounding an eclectic day off with local live music (When available) (B). 

Accommodation: Newcastle: The Lucky Hotel. https://theluckyhotel.com.au

Day 4: Dorrigo National Park (Tuesday): We start by meeting the volunteers at a local koala hospital. If you’re able to tear yourself away from the cuddly critters, you’ll be rewarded with a stop In Nambucca Heads to share in a unique and immersive Gumbaynggirr Aboriginal experience that will get you in touch with the traditional custodians of this land, lore and ancient cultural knowledge. We finish the day in true Aussie style in the Dorrigo National Park: at a traditional pub where you can relax, order some grub, have a few drinks and even play some pool (B)

We visit Dorrigo National Park, known for its lush, sub-tropical rainforest and waterfalls. Next, we’re headed to Byron Bay, a laid-back surf paradise with boundless coastline, sand and friendly locals. We will be paying a visit to the local lighthouse for a unique photo opportunity and the chance for the eagle-eyed to spot dolphins, whales, and other marine life. We’ll finish the afternoon by popping to an organic farm where we’ll pick and prepare a healthy dinner (B, D).
