Protecting a pristine sweep of coastline near Port Macquarie and Taree, Crowdy Bay National Park is one of the most glorious coastal parks of NSW. It offers jaw-dropping ocean and mountain views, an abundance of wildlife and, despite its name, crowd-free beaches.

The best part? That’s for you to decide, but if you dream of camping on ocean shores, strolling barefoot in the dunes, roving a rainforest, seeing a whale blow or even discovering a hidden writer’s retreat, then this is the place for you.

Aboriginal people have known its bountiful wonders for over 6000 years, Captain Cook glimpsed its glittering beauty in 1770 and it is all still here for you to enjoy.

Go for a day or plan to stay, but be aware that this is a place so enthralling that time slips away.
