Mid North Coast - Crescent Head - New South Wales

This easy-going town at the southern edge of the Macleay Valley Coast is one of the most famous surfing spots in the country. You’ll also discover beautiful sandy beaches and lush national parks for bushwalking, camping and whale watching. It’s easy to see why Crescent Head is a firm favourite for family holidays.

Surfers have been flocking to the beaches of Crescent Head since the 1950s. In 2008, Killick Beach was named one of Australia’s National Surfing Reserves for its long, slow right hand break. It’s also home to the annual Crescent Head Malibu Classic, the largest amateur longboard competition in the country.

Killick is popular with families too, as children can swim in the sheltered waters of Killick Creek. Point Plomer is another great surf break and a favourite of the locals. Goolawah Beach is the place to get away from the crowds and Delicate Beach can be good for snorkelling on calm days. To brush up on your surfing skills, join Surfaris for a lesson or camp.

Things to do

Enjoy bushwalking, swimming and fishing in the coastal national parks. To the south is Goolawah National Park and Limeburners Creek National Park, named for the lime created in colonial times from burning oyster shells. You’ll find significant Aboriginal cultural heritage sites in the parks that date back thousands of years.

The Big Hill Rainforest walking track is a moderately challenging 1.4km loop with spectacular views. The headland on the walk is a great vantage point for spotting whales between May and November. You can also spot whales from Crescent Head Lookout and Little Nobby Point, and even from the fairways of the six-hole golf course.
