Harwood Island

The Pacfic Highway crosses this sugar coated island and the Clarence River is about 8km wide at this point. Harwood is the centre of the local sugar industry. The crushing mill is the oldest surviving mill in Australia. During 1989 the State’s only sugar refinery was constructed beside the mill. There are no mill tours but visitors are welcome to drive by and stop at the old tug ‘Beardmore’ where an industry information display is being assembled.

The Harwood Hotel hads been nicknamed “The Hilton” and its a good stop for food, drink or accommodation. The adjacent old ferry ramps are often used to launch boats.

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
