Comboyne NSW, Elands KOG Easter Gathering April 2014

Comboyne is a village on the Mid North Coast region of New South Wales. It is situated on the Comboyne Plateau about 50km east of Elands Village, some 60 km south-west of Port Macquarie, 35 km west of Kew and 54 km north-west of Taree. It is an attractive agricultural area with fertile soils and a high rainfall. The word “Comboyne” is a corruption of the local indigenous people's name for “a place of kangaroos”.
Previously, the area was covered in sub-tropical rainforest which has almost all been cleared by the early 20th century. The early explorers originally sought the valuable timber of the Australian Red Cedar. The second oldest natural reserve in the state is at nearby Boorganna Nature Reserve which preserves a remnant of sub-tropical rainforest.
The village contains some very attractive murals and a lovely coffee shop which is well worth the visit.
