Discover secluded Back Beach picnic area on a north coast getaway. Located just minutes from Woody Head campground and 4km from Iluka, it’s one of the quietest spots in Bundjalung National Park.
Spread out the picnic rug or take advantage of the picnic tables. Then relax, surrounded by coastal forest, the silence broken only by the call of figbirds moving through the canopy, or goannas rustling through the underbrush.
You’re likely to have this spot to yourselves, so there’s plenty of space for to kick a ball around the large grassy area.
When you’re ready to work off lunch, take a short stroll to the beach for a swim or surf in the sparkling blue water. Enjoy a game of beach cricket with family and friends, or try your hand at beach fishing. Pristine Back Beach is also the perfect place to set out for long oceanside walks, with only seabirds to break your solitude.
If you’re ready for more action, combine your picnic with a 4WD adventure on nearby Ten Mile Beach. Paddle the Esk River, or head to Iluka Bluff lookout for a spot of dolphin and whale watching.
