My happy place (Judy Henderson)

My happy place is nestled between the dunes and ocean at Tuckers Rock, north of the Bellinger River’s entrance. Freshwater flows east from the mountains, it thunders down waterfalls into calm, clear pools, navigates green paddocks and rainforests, before emerging through Melaleuca-stained estuaries and spilling into the Pacific Ocean.
