Glenugie is a small regional area on the mid-north coast of NSW in the Clarence Valley, and though most of it was once logged, and large tracts of land have been cleared for farming, it remains a quiet rural community with tracts of bushland breaking up the farming land. If you don’t know a local you can still find plenty of public dirt roads to wander along by car or foot. Chances are you can walk for an hour surrounded by the quiet hum of the bush without seeing another pedestrian and most likely you can spot a goanna or two. During autumn it epitomises the Australian bush with the roadsides adorned with golden grass stalks and gum saplings in garments of green, red, brown and orange. Often tourists head to Australian beaches, and the coast is only a 20 minute drive from here, but the bush is worthy of exploration and filled with birds and reptiles for the observant wanderer to enjoy, as well as kangaroos, emus and wallabies … and even some wild horses.
