“Bongil Bongil is our family’s favourite spot for fishing on the north coast. The picnic area is right by the river so you can cook up your catch for lunch.”
Bongil Bongil National Park, south of Coffs Harbour, has plenty to offer, including wild beaches, sweeping coastal views and peaceful streams.
The park is popular with locals for a spot of fishing, either on the pontoon by Bonville creek or on the beach around Bundagen Head. Picnic and barbecue facilities are available nearby and there are opportunities for both beach and rainforest walking. The park is also a regional favourite for mountain bike adventures.
The rainforest of Bongil Bongil National Park provides habitat for migrating birds and animals, and surrounding eucalypt forests are home to one of NSW’s largest koala populations. You might see them sleeping in the treetops or munching on leaves.
With so much to offer visitors, it’s no wonder Bongil Bongil is a popular beach holiday destination. Guided tours are available during school holidays and holiday accommodation is available at Bundagen Cottage at Tuckers Rocks.
