Yuraygir Coastal Walk

Yuraygir Coastal walk

4 day Pack Free walk

This pack free walk explores the Yuraygir Coastal Walk near Yamba on the mid-north coast of NSW.  This 65km walk takes you from Angourie to Red Rock, the largest coastline of the national park in NSW. During this guided 4 day walk, you will meander through rocky headlands, bays, beaches covered with pandanus, coffee rock cliffs and lush rainforest. You might even find some whale bones spread between the driftwood or spot a coastal emu.

This walk allows you to experience the beautiful coastal nature and re-trace the history of Yuraygir. One legend of Yuraygir describes the story of two Aboriginal men who changed their footprints into that of coastal emus in order to escape their chasers. These legendary coastal emus are represented in the walk logo spotted across the National Park.

Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Angourie to Brooms Head
Yuraygir Coastal Walk

Meet your guide at Grafton Quality Inn at 7.30am for your transfer to Yamba to the start of your walk. (Note for groups we can organise a pre-night and transfer at Angourie Resort, Yamba). Today takes us from Mara Creek to beautiful Brooms Head. During the walk, you will explore several coastal plant sceneries. You will wander through wet and dry heathlands and marvel at the breathtaking landscapes of sandstone rocky platforms and far-reaching coastline. At the stunning surroundings of Dirragan headland, you can learn about its relation to the Yaegi people. Admire the gorgeous views of the coffee rock sand cliff while meandering alongside the coastline. Roam a short distance through the coastal rainforest in the shelter of the headland. The walk ends with an easy stroll on the beach. Transfer to the stylish Angourie Resort with free time to relax before joining your fellow guests for another wonderful dinner in the Resort’s Restaurant accompanied by Australian wines.

Day 2: Brooms Head to Minnie Water
Yuraygir Coastal Walk

After breakfast, we transfer to Brooms Head to continue our walk. Our journey takes us along the stunning beach for most of the day. You will encounter beautiful panoramas of the coastline. A perfect place for turtle, dolphin and whale spotting. Descend onto the beach and meander to Sandon River where you will have amazing views of Plover Island. Plover Island is an important place with immense cultural significance for the Yaegl people. Before reaching Minnie Water, wander through stunningly coloured and textured old smooth-barked ‘apples’. From here we transfer to Wooli River Lodges for our next 2 nights accommodation. Tonight we dine with the locals at the local hotel, with a range of food choices available from Italian to German and Austrian. Relax and soak up the atmosphere as we enjoy wine with dinner.

Day 3: Minnie Water to Wooli
Yuraygir Coastal Walk

Enjoy a hearty breakfast before heading out to walk from Minnie Water to Wooli. Start the day with a stunning view of the rocky shoreline and wild heath flowers. Meander along the beach before the track changes into a grassy and forested trail. Wander alongside gorgeous and rocky coastal cliffs and bays. Offering many opportunities for turtle spotting and whale watching. Today’s highlight is the Themeda grassy headland, which is an endangered ecological community. You might even come across some Eastern Grey kangaroos appreciating the view. Tonight we all get together for a wonderful dinner served wines at the Wooli Hotel.

Day 4: Wooli to Red Rock
Yuraygir Coastal Walk

Enjoy breakfast before setting out on our final day’s walk from Wooli to Red Rock. This walk will take us along the beach for a short while. A rather challenging rock climbing or hopping in between short sections of rocky bays follows. The beauty and seclusion of the area make this extremely worthwhile. Wander along the freshwater walking track while marvelling at the stunning bay of Pebbly Beach. Ditch your shoes and meander through Station Creek estuary, which is a valuable breeding site for numerous endangered shorebirds like the Little Tern, Pied Oyster Catcher and Beach Stone-curlew, before reaching the gorgeous Red Rock River. After our walk, we transfer back to Grafton arriving at 3.30pm in time for flights home.
