Valley of the Mist - Macksville

Kakadu is famous for its wetlands but the sleepy town of Macksville located around 100kms south of Coffs Harbour is also home to one of Australia’s most significant wetland areas.


A tour of the Valley of the Mist offers a unique glimpse of one of Australia’s lesser known attractions along the Legendary Pacific Coast.

The Valley of the Mist, or the less romantically named 100 Acre Swamp, occurs across ten properties managed by eight separate landholders who agreed to preserve this special area for years to come.

The wetlands are listed under the Ramsar Convention, an international treaty for the conservation of significant wetlands that are valued for their economic, cultural, scientific, and recreational value.
