Angourie walking track is a moderately challenging route linking Mara Creek picnic area in the north with Shelley Headland in the south. This superb coastal hike passes through sections of coastland heath and along the seaward side of a ridge with views of sheltered bays and rocky shoals. Keep your binoculars handy for birds in the heath, as well as marine creatures – pods of dolphins, schools of sea mullet and bait fish, and migrating whales – often visible from this amazing vantage point. The route takes in a particularly scenic point called Dirrangan lookout.

At Shelley Headland, you can choose to turn back to tackle the 10km return hike of Angourie walking track, or do some fancy car shuffling and make it a one-way trip. Camping is available at Shelley Headland campground.

Angourie walking track is also part of Yuraygir coastal walk's Angourie to Brooms Head.
