Orford

Orford is a perfect place to take a break for a coffee and snack (or long lunch), throw in a line from the Prosser River Bridge or visit one of the nearby beaches—including Raspins, Millingtons, Spring and Rheban Beach. Take some time to go for a swim, take a stroll on the sand or just laze the afternoon away while you take in the views over Mercury Passage towards Maria Island.

Take some time to explore the local area on foot—try the scenic cliff walk from East Shelley to Spring Beach, walk the convict road beside the Prosser River to the ruins of Paradise probation station, or pack a picnic and head to Thumbs lookout for lunch with a view.

While you’re here, factor in some time to visit a local winery (try Darlington Vineyard for a sampling of fine east coast wines), play a round of golf or take the Wielangta Forest Drive—a gravel forestry road that leads through tall eucalypt production forests and pockets of remnant rainforest to Sandspit Reserve (4WD only).
