Yuraygir National Park stretches along the Northern NSW coast between the villages of Angourie and Corindi. The National Park protects large swathes of undisturbed coastal land and is a haven for wildlife.
In fact, Yuraygir National Park is the longest stretch of protected coastline in New South Wales.
Accessible visitor areas in the section of the park around Wooli and Minnie Water include:
- Illaroo Camping Area north of Minnie Water at Sandon Beach. Lovely tree-covered area that’s great for family camping.
- Walking tracks at Minnie Water: 3 short and easy nature walks around the holiday village of Minnie Water.
- Wilson’s Headland near Wooli has a walking track with boardwalk sections and a lookout platform with wonderful views.
When to visit
Yuraygir National Park is pleasant all year round. Sea breezes bring relief to warm summer daysWinter and spring are particularly enjoyable. From late winter to early summer, heathlands provide a spectacular display of colourful wildflowers, while you might spot a whale on its annual migration along the East Coast between April and November.
