    Thanks, Dawn.  :hi: These were pics from our trip in early January. We were only away for a few days & these are the pics from our first day's travel with more to come. :lol3: Still working my way through them. They were delayed as I still had pics from our trip last November to finish.  :blush2:

    Next day, heading south from Taree in the early morning sun. Travelling from NSW's Mid North Coast to the Central Coast north of Sydney.

    Light traffic. It is double-laned dividied highway (mostly 110kph) all the way, thank goodness.

    Cruising south along the Pacific Highway. Cannot believe just how green everything is.

    This long stretch of the double-laned divided Pacific Highway is wonderful but will get more crowded as we get closer to the Central Coast & Sydney region.

    The eucalypts are covered in new unbelievably lush green leaves.

    Still cannot get over how green the eucalypts are. They are covered in a large bushy new green leaf-cluster growth at the end of all their branches. Most unusual. Their new growth is normally a few reddish/brown leaves which then turn a darker green. It is amazing. Heading into the very welcome Bulahdelah bypass.

    A rather steep incline. The original Pacific Highway through the Bulahdelah Ranges & village was notoriously steep, winding & dangerous.

    There are new tree plantings on the left to help replace the trees that were removed during the bypass's construction. Note the long wildlife protective fencing on the right & the three possom crossings slung across the divided double-lane highway.
