Surfers to other side of the border

Want to have a day trip from Surfers to NSW border as have only been to Bryon Bay in NSW but have no idea where to go, where would you suggest - we like beaches vineyards and general places of interest. Any suggestions would be great. Thank you

hi sparkle, i would suggest heading down the coast from surfers and head to kingscliff which is about a 1 hour drive. some nice little shops, great beaches and cafes. then you could head inland to uki and mt warning national park for some nice views.

not too sure about any vineyards in nth nsw unless you head a bit further inland which wold be a bit of a drive. it hink its a bit too humid in summer for vineyards closer to the coast, but im certainly no expert

Drive the coastal route from Kingscliff, Hastings Point, Pottsville and on to Brunswick Heads, no vineyards but Brunswick Heads has a good pub beer garden. You might also find Mullumbimby an interesting town,

Sirromet has a vineyard at Mount Cotton, but that's out the back of the Gold Coast not NSW.

Yeah the Northern NSW region isn't exactly renowned for its wineries so you'd have to go somewhere inland like Tamborine Mountain/the GC Hinterland to get something similar rather than heading south. As others have mentioned, Kingscliff and Pottsville are nice, but they are really just less commercialised versions of the Gold Coast with similar scenery (beaches and cafes, some boutique and craft stores... and that's about it.)

The fact that you've already been to Byron makes it tough to suggest anywhere else.

This place out the back of Byron Bay seems to have a windery:
