Northernmost of Angourie’s trio of heavenly headlands, Green Point has been a special meeting place for the Yaegl mob – Indigenous custodians of this area for millennia.
Though there are no showers or toilets here, there’s modest parking and a beautiful sandstone paver track leading from the carpark to the small platform overlooking Green Point.
Green Point is a perfect spot to watch the sun and the moonrise, to watch whales lurch around the corner from Angourie headland, and to watch the local dolphins go about their fishy business.
Green Point isn’t really a swimming spot, it’s a shallow reef break beloved by surfers (surfing to the north on south swells) and bodyboarders (riding fantastically hollow tubes in the other direction on east or north east swells)
For a swim, your best bet is to scoot around to Spooky Beach, adjacent to the south. Miners to the north is fickle and dangerous.
This marks the start of the Yuraygir National Park, and so if you’re with your hound, you’ll be heading down the northern stairs in the Miners / Dump Beach direction.
And tempting as it might be, camping is a definite no-no.
