Since I first stepped foot in the Yuraygir National Park, I’ve used it as inspiration and have been drawn back to it ever since. There are several areas that I return to regularly and I’m continually blown away by the raw beauty and isolation of these places where you can spend days and see no one, and there’s nothing but nature all around you. The Yuraygir is yet to be topped and is always in the back of my mind. www.billett.com.au
My favourite places are the scenic routes: everywhere from the beaches to the river and the mountains bordering the national parks. I love taking the back roads and exploring, because there’s such a diverse range of scenery in the Clarence Valley.

My favourite spot in the Clarence Valley would have to be my back deck at home. I couldn’t tell you how many afternoons I’ve spent watching the sun disappear behind the mountains or simply just admiring the stars and the Milky Way on those clear, crisp winter nights. There’s an abundance of birdlife around the lake below home. Every now and then we’ll catch the trains passing by which my daughters also love to watch.
