To the West

To the west (and a little north) is the Karuah National Park. Although not as famous as the Myall Lakes National Park, it is still a beautiful area and a great spot for bushwalking, camping and just immersing yourself in nature.

Southwest is the famous Hunter Valley (only an hour and a half to the centre of the vineyards). An early morning drive to the wineries will see you well stocked and back in Hawks Nest or Tea Gardens in time for a late lunch or early dinner and a great bottle of red or a chilled white to go with your meal.
