Yuraygir Coastal Walk
4-5 days / 65km one way / 7 campgrounds / 4 coastal towns
Follow the ancient wandering trails of Australia’s coastal emus on the multi-day Yuraygir coastal walk.
Explore sea caves and rock pools, swim at private beaches and soak up ocean views from ochre cliffs.
Don’t get scared by that 65km total length! While Yuraygir Coastal Walk can be done as a multi-day backpacking odyssey, many of the 7 beachside campgrounds can be accessed by car, allowing you to pick and choose your way up the coast.
This colossal signposted track traverses the coastline from Angourie to Red Rock. The scenery and views along the way are diverse and astounding. You’ll encounter wildlife and wildflowers as you walk past heathland plains, long sandy beaches, tranquil creeks, lagoons, rocky headlands and even a marine park.
Tackle the full 65km with overnight camping stops along the way or break the track up into shorter segments. It’s best walked north to south with the sun at your back.
This section of the NSW North Coast, traditionally the lands of the Gumbaynggirr and Yaegl people, defines the Australian coastal hiking experience. Time to get sandy? It’s unlikely you’ll ever forget it.
