Heritage riverside – and beachfront – pubs are dotted throughout the Macleay Valley Coast, offering what is arguably an opportunity for the most picturesque pub crawl in regional Australia! Most contain great restaurants, and those at Smithtown and Gladstone are both award winners.
There are also plenty of small cafes, take-aways, and bakeries, none more famous than our very own Fredo Pies. Pay them a visit in Frederickton to try their world famous “Croc Pie”.
Don’t miss the opportunity to grab some fresh fish and chips, or other locally caught seafood, to eat on one of our many glorious beaches while you’re here.
