Logistics & Visitor Instructions For Upper Lansdowne Hall

 

Directions to Upper Lansdowne and the Hall

The hall is located at 1412 Upper Lansdowne Rd, Upper Lansdowne. A Google map is included below but here are some basic directions to make things as easy as possible:

From the south e.g. coming from Sydney/Newcastle

  • Take the second Taree (Cundletown) exit off the highway.  Follow for approx 3km then turn right at the airport onto Lansdowne Rd.
  • Follow for approx 10km then turn left onto Upper Lansdowne Rd.
  • Follow approx 14km to Upper Lansdowne Village.
  • There is a big “Upper Lansdowne” sign half way there – ignore this completely, you are in the village when the road goes to 60kph. Also ignore Coxcomb Road just before the village – it is a dirt road which carries on straight, while the main tar road sweeps to the right and downhill.
  • The hall is on the right opposite the church.

From the north e.g. coming from Coffs Harbour

  • Take the Coopernook exit off the highway.
  • There are two Coopernook exits, so if you miss the first one (it is easy to miss) just take the second, bigger exit.
  • Take Lansdowne Rd. towards Lansdowne.
  • Follow approx 10km to Lansdowne.  At Lansdowne turn right onto Central Lansdowne Rd. Follow all the way to the end (approx 9.5km).  The last 3km of this road is gravel.  At the T intersection turn right onto Upper Lansdowne Rd.
  • Follow the tar road for approx 3km to Upper Lansdowne Village – ignore Coxcomb road just before the village which is a dirt road which carries on straight, while the main tar road sweeps to the right and downhill.
  • The hall is on the right opposite the church.
  • DO NOT come via Comboyne, or listen to Google maps and many satnavs, which try to bring you in via the north end of Koppin Yarrat Rd! The road is permanently closed due to a landslide, so you have to access from the south via Upper Lansdowne Rd.
