Carawirry is an easy and scenic 20 minute drive from the picturesque town of Dungog. You will pass beautifully restored wooden bridges, rolling green pastures and working beef cattle and dairy farms. There is no public transport available, but we doubt you'll want to leave the spectacular quiet once you have arrived.
