Best times to visit

There are lots of great things waiting for you in Yuraygir National Park. Here are some of the highlights.


Autumn is the perfect time of year to go beach fishing along the park's coastline.


The park's heathlands provide a spectacular display of wildflowers. Check them out on your choice of walking track, including the Wilsons Headland walk and, of course, the Yuraygir coastal walk.


Visit in summer to make the most of the park's countless beaches and waterways. Swim, surf or snorkel – cooling sea breezes provide welcome relief in hot weather.
