yuraygir national park
Yuraygir National Park, between the villages of Angourie and Corindi, protects large swathes of undisturbed coastal land, and is a haven for wildlife. Pockets of white sand beach dot the coastline.
There are six visitor areas in the park, each fringed by beautiful, natural coastal vegetation:
- Mara Creek and Angourie Bay Picnic Area south of Angourie is home to the world famous Angourie surf break, including the world's first Surfing Reserve and the Angourie walk which hugs the coastline for 10km south to Lake Arragan.
- Lake Arragan & Redcliff Camping Areas, to the north of Brooms Head, and Sandon River Camping Area south of Brooms Head are fabulous for beach and water activities and wildlife watching.
- Illaroo Camping Area north of Minnie Water at Sandon Beach is a lovely treed area great for family camping.
- Other visitor areas are located at Wilson's Headland near Wooli and Station Creek, north of Red Rock.
Each area is accessed from separate locations along the Pacific Highway, with some sections of gravel road.
