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.


A Pack Free Walk

No heavy pack to carry

Pack Free Walks are us. Every walk we design is carefully created so that you won’t need to carry overnight gear or your clothes for any part of your journey. Walk with as little as your water and camera every day, allowing you to relax and enjoy the scenery without the heavy burden.


The waterfront Pacific Hotel

at Yamba

Night one we will stay at the historic Pacific Hotel Yamba set on the escarpment offering magnificent ocean and beach views.

Guests will stay in a signature king or queen rooms with ensuites.


Wooli River House

Close to the trail

Due to its location to the track, our last two nights accommodation is in the sleepy undeveloped seaside town of Wooli. Situated on the Wooli River, the accommodation is surrounded by pretty natural settings.

Accommodation is in one double-storey river house with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Options are available for an upgrade to your own garden lodge with ensuite – the garden lodges have one queen bed and 1 bunk bed. When garden lodges are not available other lodge styles may be used.

Please note: accommodation style and standards do vary across our range of Australian tours based on the remoteness of each area.  However, we always choose the best accommodation available, which is close to the trail, this accommodation is clean and comfortable. 


Fabulous meals featuring local produce

served with regional wines

At Yamba, we dine in a local restaurant in the heart of the town featuring superb Australian wine with dinner. Whilst our stay at Wooli will have a true Aussie flavour as we dine with the locals at Emilio’s Bistro in the colourful local hotel. Owner Emilio has a varied menu of delicious Italian cuisine alongside German and Austrian.


Personalised Tours

Maximum of 12 guests

We keep our group sizes small and personalised with a maximum of 12 guests per trip, we find this delivers more personalised service, a great social environment and has less impact on the environment.
