    Best times to visit

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


    Spring offers the most comfortable temperatures to visit the park, and some hillsides bloom in the unmistakable red of flame trees, particularly around Kosekai lookout.


    The crisp air of winter provides the clearest views of the surrounding region, so photographers should come mid-year or in late Autumn.

    Nambucca Heads (43 km)

    If you are looking for a sunny beach holiday, the climate in Nambucca Heads is close to perfect, with highs of around 27°C in summer, and 18°C in winter.
