Hidden away between Crescent Head and Port Macquarie on the mid north coast, you’ll find this idyllic stretch of pristine coast. Get off the beaten track and enjoy this remote piece of beachside paradise.

Discover golden sandy beaches, amazing surf breaks, remote camping spots and fascinating Aboriginal cultural heritage. With options for swimming, fishing, walking or just lazing on the beach, it makes for a fantastic family holiday or a relaxing beachside retreat.

The sparkling coastline of heathlands, banksia and blackbutt forest and the rare rainforests of Big Hill provide habitat to an abundance of wildlife. You’ll see ospreys, pied oystercatchers, dingoes, koalas, quolls, and if you’re lucky, the rare ground parrot. You may even spot majestic black swans gliding over the waters of Saltwater Lake.

 

Get wild about whales

NSW national parks have the best vantage points to see whales during their annual migration, which takes place from May to November. Plan your next coastal adventure.
