Bundjalung National Park - Iluka
Bundjalung National Park is located between Evans Head and Iluka. It contains a vast area of coastal plain, heath land and solitary beaches. A unique feature of this national park is the coffee rock formations that stick out along the beach in the northern part of the park. Other features include the Jerusalem Creek Peninsula, freshwater lagoons, mangrove mudflats and rare rainforests at Woody Head. The Esk River starts and finishes in the Bundjalung National Park.
The beaches (unpatrolled) suit surfing, fishing, canoeing and swimming. Four wheel drive beach access is available from Shark Bay to the Black Rocks camping area. Camping and cabin accommodation is available at Woody Head. Camping fees apply. There are five picnic areas near Iluka, including Iluka Bluff which has a great whale-watching lookout and cultural heritage display in the picnic shelter.
Traces of traditional Aboriginal occupation are found throughout the park.
