Booral: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Tourist Drive 2 - Bucketts Way


The Bucketts Way is the second oldest tourist drive in the state, and for good reason, it is a scenic detour off the Pacific Highway. Tourist Drive 2 (the Bucketts Way) takes you through tall forest, rolling green valleys and pretty towns and villages.

This scenic route is popular with motorcycle riders as it provides one of the best road touring experiences in NSW. Motorists will discover the historic town of Stroud, the beautifully located regional town of Gloucester, the hillside village of Krambach and the riverside village of Tinonee.

Named after the Bucketts Mountains overlooking Gloucester, it was the former alignment of State Highway 10 (changed in 1931 to the Pacific Highway), between Raymond Terrace and Taree between August 1928 and 1952.

The Bucketts Way provides a vital link to Barrington Tops via Gloucester and access to the New England region via Thunderbolts Way.
