If you’re dreaming of a peaceful seaside holiday town surrounded by natural beauty, then look no further than Evans Head. This charming fishing village is divided by the idyllic Evans River, bordered by magnificent national parks, and lined with pristine beaches.
Spend a delightful day at the estuary where you can enjoy boating, canoeing, kayaking and paddle boarding in beautiful surroundings. The river is also popular amongst anglers, so see if you can catch something delicious for dinner.
To the south of Evans Head, you will find Broadwater National Park, and to the south, there is Bundjalung National Park. Broadwater offers a fantastic location for an array of activities including bird watching and hiking. Short walking trails lead to the beach, where you can enjoy a picnic whilst spotting whales out at sea. Bundjalung is home to Jerusalem Creek, a popular waterway for paddle boarders. Embark on the Gummigurrah loop walk to spot koalas in the trees.
Evans Head Beach is a stunning place to relax, with waves that are ideal for less experienced surfers, as it is protected from south-east swells. Another popular Beach is Airforce Beach, which provides decent waves, four-wheel driving access, and a leash-free dog area. Anglers also love to fish here.
Tributes to military history can be found around the town at Evans Head Living Museum and Evans Head Memorial Aerodrome Aviation Museum, which houses an impressive collection of military aircrafts.
Unwind after the day’s adventures with fresh, local seafood, and choose from a range of accommodation options for various budgets.
