Evans Head

A scenic, peaceful, coastal, fishing village located on the banks of the Evans River is the best way to describe Evans Head or ‘Hevans Head‘ as the locals like to call it. It is surrounded by national parks, with 6 km of surfing beaches and pretty coastal scenery.

Relaxing Holiday

With all the facilities within walking distance you can easily walk from your accommodation to the surf or the shallow beaches along the river estuary and to the township. It’s the perfect location to ride a bike to discover the natural beauty.

National Parks

Explore the NSW national parks along the coast to the north and south of Evans Head. Bundjalung National Park has 38 km of beaches while Broadwater National Park to the north has 8 km.

Fresh Seafood

A small, local, fishing fleet and Fishermen’s Co-Op lie just over the river. Imagine yourself walking or riding your bike over to buy fresh seafood for a meal. You must experience the taste of fresh prawns that have been just caught.

Goanna Headland
