Trip highlights

  • Explore the secluded coast between Angourie and Red Rock
  • Spot an abundance of wildlife, including kangaroos, whales and birdlife
  • Enjoy ever-changing and expansive views of the ocean, rocky headlands and bushland
  • Hike in the beautiful Yuraygir National Park

The Yuraygir National Park is the largest coastal park in New South Wales and one of the most diverse bioregions in the country. From age-old coastal landforms, littoral rainforest, eucalypt forest, woodland and wetlands, you can see it all in Yuraygir National Park. The National Park is home to the stunning Yuraygir Coastal Track which follows the footsteps of the ancient coastal emus that once thrived in the park.

Over four days we walk southwards taking in the sweeping and ever-changing views. The park is home to an abundance of Australian native wildlife. As we walk we'll keep an eye out for kangaroos, white-bellied sea eagles, yellow-tailed black cockatoos, emus and whales. Carrying only a day pack, we'll walk along pristine beaches, cross creeks and rock hop across multiple small and remote beaches. In the afternoon we arrive at camp, with time to relax and enjoy a swim.

The 49 kilometre walk involves a series of tracks, trails, beaches and rock platforms that are linked by following the ‘coastal emu footprint’ marker. We hope you can join us on our exclusive new adventure.

This morning we depart early from Central Station in Sydney for our group transfer up the coast. If you prefer to self drive to Coffs Harbour, we can arrange to pick you up from Coffs Harbour airport. In the afternoon we arrive at the beautiful Yuraygir National Park where we set up camp for the evening. We have a chance to stretch our legs on a short beach walk before sitting down to our first group dinnner.

Meals:  D

After breakfast, a short transfer will bring us to Angourie Lookout and picnic area, where the Yuraygir Coastal Walk starts. We embark on the Coastal Track, heading southward for Shelley Head. If we're there at low tide we can take a detour to Shelley Caves where we can marvel at the stunning display of ocean force and time taking its toll on the sandstone headland. We finish today's walk as we head over Shelley Headland and onto Plumbago beach and the nearby Lake Arragan campground. The campground is a great spot for a swim and an afternoon of relaxing. Overnight Lake Arragan campground. Walking distance: 12.5km

Meals:  B,L,D

We start the day with a short transfer from camp to Brooms Head, where we start our walk up along the headland trail. We walk surrounded by expansive views of the sweeping beaches before arriving at Sandon for our first river crossing. We'll stop for morning tea before crossing the narrow river and strolling through the small town of Sandon. We continue along Sandon beach before arriving at our second camp spot at Illaroo North. Leaving our day packs at camp, we can enjoy a short pack-free headland walk around Minnie Water Headland and along Angophora Walking Trail. Walking distance: 17.5km

Meals:  B,L,D

A transfer brings us from camp to Wooli River, where we enjoy our second river crossing and take in the amazing views of the multi coloured headland walls. Our walk starts on the shell-covered shoreline, and we'll rock hop our way around and across several small and remote beaches. Once we reach Pebbly Beach we will take our boots off and walk across Station Creek. We camp at Station Creek Campground, nestled amongst the dunes that are teaming with birdlife and unspoilt ecosystems. Walking distance: 14km

Meals:  B,L,D

We finish the trip with a leisurely walk along Station Creek Beach toward the scenic Red Rock for our last river crossing. We'll enjoy a scenic brunch on the headland, appreciating the last of our coastal views before the group transfer back to Sydney, via Coffs Harbour.
