From Brisbane

From Brisbane CBD we are approximately 760 kilometres.

Follow the M1 which will then become the A1/ Pacific Highway all the way to our doorstep. Once you come to the Heatherbrae roundabout where Heatherbrae Pies/KFC etc are situated, take the 2nd exit and stay on Pacific Hwy/A1. Travel approx. 1 kilometre where you will come to a set of traffic lights / Hank Street. Turn to your left and do a u – turn in the McDonalds carpark. Turn right at the lights which will take you back onto the A1/Pacific Highway (the way you just came from). The Sir Francis Drake is situated 100 metres from these lights on the left hand side. We have our big blue sign on the driveway.

Miss these lights! just go a little further where there is a u–turn bay just past the electronic road sign. Make sure to get into the right hand lane once you have missed the lights to make this turn.


From Sydney

From Sydney CBD we are approximately 169 kilometres.

Once on the M1 follow this until the end of the M1. At the roundabout, take the 3rd exit onto John Renshaw Dr/A1. Merge onto New England Hwy/A1/A43. Use the left lane to take the Pacific Hwy/A1 slip road to Airport/Raymond Terrace/Taree/Brisbane. Continue onto Maitland Rd/Pacific Hwy/A1. The Sir Francis Drake is situated on the left just past the traffic lights, cross street Hank Street. We have our big blue sign on the driveway.
