The Comboyne Plateau lies between the valleys of the Manning River to the south, the Hastings River to the north and the Camden Haven to the east. The small village of Comboyne, situated on Tourist Drive 8, is located on the plateau. Experience the natural beauty with all your senses. Fresh mountain air, green pastures, forests, peace and tranquillity.

Since white settlement, about 120 years ago, the region has been a prime dairy farming area. Over recent years, a number of horticultural enterprises have been established. These include plantings of avocados, macadamias, blueberries and other fruits, vegetables,and cheeses. If in season Farmgate is available on this tourist route.

Comboyne is the gateway to Ellenborough Falls for Visitors from the Port Macquarie region. Located 28kms from Comboyne, Ellenborough Falls at 200m is one of the longest single drop waterfalls in the Southern Hemisphere. Take the 641 timber steps to the bottom of the valley to look up at the amazing falls. Allow a couple of hours to walk down and back.

It's a great day trip with spectacular views! Make sure you visit The Larrikin's Lock Up (Historic Comboyne Gaol & Garden Centre), and The Coffee Hangar, while you're there.
