EXPLORE OUR NATIONAL PARKS AND LOCAL WALKS
- Limeburners Creek, Saltwater Lake and the surrounding sand ridges support an unusual mixture of habitats and vegetation communities.
- Starting at the Killick Creek Bridge follow the path up to Little Nobby, where you can sit and watch the world go by, then along the edge of the golf course to the water tower for a beautiful view of the coastline.
- Explore the rare rainforest of Big Hill which provides shelter for the threatened and well-camouflaged ground parrot. Take in the sparkling coastline of heathlands, banksia and blackbutt forest.
UNWIND ON OUR BEAUTIFUL BEACHES
- Killick Beach or Front Beach as the locals call it ~ has one of the longest point breaks in Australia. The northern end is popular with surfers, fishermen and campers as it provides easy access to the centre of town, plenty of parking, BBQ facilities and a playground.
- Goolawah Beach is 'a bit of a walk' down a steep track on the southern side of the water tower where a left hand point break is the main feature. Goolawah Beach is also great for sunbaking away from the crowds or for peaceful early morning walks.
- Delicate Beach ~ with numerous walking tracks drawing their way over the headlands at either end is great for walking or running. With a large rock formation dividing the beach into two sections, when the swell is direct you can get waves peeling off each side of the formation. On a calm day Delicate offers some excellent snorkelling opportunities.
- Point Plomer Beach ~ 14km from Crescent Head, is a long, sandy beach featuring an excellent right hand wave. A popular beach with a cult like status among locals and visitors alike.
