“We loved the cute cottage and woke to the chatter of birds and nearby crashing surf.”

Awaken to the sound of the waves in your very own retro beach shack in Woody Head campground at Bundjalung National Park. Nestled between the rainforest, the river, and the beach, the rustic charm of Woody Head Cottages and Cabins makes them a perfect destination for a no-fuss holiday on the North Coast.

The idyllic location lends itself to exploring the golden beaches that stretch for mile upon unspoilt mile. Spend your days walking, fishing, swimming and snorkelling. If you’re feeling adventurous, bring the canoe for a day of paddling the river – try the nearby Jerusalem Creek paddle route. When it’s time to cool off, experience the shady delights of unique coastal rainforest right outside the back door.

As the sun goes down, grab an easy snack from the nearby kiosk or, if you’re inspired, spark up the barbecue and dine al fresco beneath the stars.
