Passing through open woodland, lush rainforest and heathlands, you’ll discover mangrove-lined creeks and scenic river islands. Arriving at a shady glen, stop for lovely views overlooking the river. Perfect for birdwatching, you might see pied oystercatchers, white-bellied sea eagles and brahminy kites.

The Gummigurrah area was once used as a winter camp for the Bundjalung people and the remains of a midden can be seen near the end of the walking track. Why not bring the canoe for a paddle along Canoe Evans River paddle route.
