If you enjoy holidaying on the water, you’ll love Bundjalung’s combination of river, beach and freshwater lagoons. This north coast park stretches north from Iluka to Evans Head with the Pacific Ocean as its eastern boundary.
Spend a day canoeing along Evans River or Jerusalem Creek, mountain biking the Macaulays Lead or Serendipity fire trail, or walking along Ten Mile Beach. There are also boat launching facilities, snorkelling on the shallow reefs and fishing.
If you’d like to spend longer exploring, head to one of the beachside campgrounds in the park, or book into one of the Woody Head cabins. In the evening enjoy a barbecue dinner before gathering around the campfire with a local Bundjalung guide to listen to stories of their culture, values and connections to this park.
