Nature in Iluka
Iluka is a peaceful and scenic coastal town with superb fishing and beaches. Located by the northern mouth of Clarence River, Iluka is also bordered by the South Pacific Ocean and surrounded by a wide range of natural wonders such as Bundjalung National Park and the World Heritage-listed Iluka Nature Reserve.
Iluka, on the Clarence Coast, is for anyone whose idea of a perfect holiday town is small, sensational and relaxed in the extreme.
The World Heritage-listed Iluka Nature Reserve contains the largest remnant of littoral rainforest where trees obtain water via filtration through coastal sand in NSW, and supports a rich vegetation and abundant bird and animal life. Stroll the reserve's 2.5 km walking track, a fascinating experience for conservationists and birdwatchers. Also explore Bundjalung National Park, a great nature attraction, named after the Aboriginal people who were the original inhabitants of the area.
Iluka has a wide range of holiday accommodation, with excellent camping facilities and caravan parks.
