Nature in Sawtell
Sawtell is a beautiful beachside town located by Bongil Bongil National Park. The park is a popular fishing spot with great locations by Bongil Creek or the Bundagen headland. Visit Sawtell Beach and enjoy activities such as surfing, swimming and whale watching.
Just south of Sawtell, Bongil Bongil National Park is a relatively small coastal park, yet it encompasses an array of rich and diverse plant and animal communities. With its unspoilt beaches, forests, wetlands, rainforest and pristine estuaries, the park offers an ideal setting for recreational activities.
The beaches range from stunning to superb and Sawtell has recently awoken from its seaside slumber to find that it's been put on the style map. The town's main street is divided by a median strip planted with enormous fig trees, which now provide shade for the chic cafes and designer stores that have taken root there. Today Sawtell is smart and relaxed, and far removed from the bustle of nearby Coffs Harbour, even at the peak of summer.
