Urunga is a wonderful destination where the Bellinger and Kalang rivers meet with the ocean. A relaxed seaside atmosphere, the town on the mid North Coast of NSW has marvellous beaches for surfing and swimming. Other activities include cycling, kayaking, fishing and boating.

The elevated Urunga Boardwalk is a splendid trail, taking you over the estuary where the Bellinger and Kalang rivers meet to a beach and the Pacific Ocean. Beach and rock fishing are popular in Urunga, and golfers can delight in a nine-hole course overlooking the waterways.
