Saltwater National Park is a small coastal reserve surrounded by rainforest, just east of Taree. It's a popular seasonal camping spot for local Aboriginal people, and its convenient coastal locale means that surfers, swimmers and fishers find it equally attractive.
Saltwater Beach is a much-loved surfing area, also great for swimming and sunbathing. The large, well-equipped Saltwater picnic area, adjacent to the beach, makes a perfect spot to relax between swims. Wallabi Beach is great for a surf. Or, you can paddle a canoe, kayak, or fish amongst the mangroves along Khappinghat Creek.
The views from Headland walking track are not only spectacular, it's a great place to go whale watching. From August through to November, you might spot humpback whales on their annual migration.
All year round, be sure to keep an eye out for bottlenose dolphins surfing the waves, sea eagles swooping into the sea to catch their prey, and brush turkeys wandering along the tracks in search of food.
Pure joy as you wake to the sunrise. Awe as you make it to the snowy peak. A sense of adventure as you motor across red plains. The relief of rejuvenation as you wade into an alpine stream. Connection as you taste native, fragrant leaves. A sense of belonging as you return to your favourite holiday house. Freedom as you dash into the waves. Discover the endless feelings a visit to NSW can inspire.
