For a long weekend getaway, you really don’t want to be travelling more than 2-3 hours. So from Sydney, Nelson Bay is right in the right spot if diving is on your list of activities. If you hit a good run with traffic (which we did), it’s about 2 1/2 hours north of Sydney – and has the bonus of being slightly warmer than heading south.

I’ll be on board the amazing Taka dive boat exploring the Ribbon Reefs and Cod Hole of the northern Great Barrier Reef in August, hopefully not too late to catch a glimpse of the Minke Whales on their annual migration.
