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.
