About the Mid North Coast

The Mid North Coast comprises an area of 17,218 square kilometres, halfway between Sydney and Brisbane.

Lying between the Great Divide and the east coast the landscape is typified by winding rivers that feed lush hinterland, and over one hundred kilometres of pristine beaches. It benefits from a high rainfall and is considered by many to have the most ideal climate in Australia.

Combining some of Australia’s most beautiful coastline, with friendly communities and plenty of business opportunities, gives the Mid North Coast its unique work life balance.
