EXPLORING Evans Head and surrounds

Evans Head has many hidden gems to explore if you enjoy the great outdoors.


Broadwater National Park


Situated 8 km North of Evans Head, Broadwater National Park is a bird watcher and beach-lovers paradise.

The coastal heaths are home to a number of different bird species that can be viewed year round.

Broadwater Beach is accessible from the picnic grounds where you'll find  coffee rock formations scattered in the sand.

Broadwater Beach is also 4WD friendly. 4WD vehicular access is located south at Airforce Beach Evans Head or north from Boundary Creek Road, Broadwater. 

Bundjalung National Park

Bundjalung National Park extends from Evans Head in the north to Iluka in the South.

Bundjalung protects a variety of environments that feature water, including beaches, rivers, wetlands and lagoons. You'll find different types of plants, animals and birds in each one; look for coast banksia, coast she-oak and coastal wattle on the dunes that back onto the beach. Immerse yourself in this world by canoeing the waterways, rambling in the rock pools and swimming in the ocean.

Explore the rocky headlands between Razorback Lookout and Chinamens Beach and discover a treasure trove of walking tracks. Can you find the little lighthouse?
