Swaying palm trees, breathtaking coastal scenery, a crystal-clear lagoon and the southern-most coral reef in the world, all bless this World Heritage Site.

The island’s isolation in the Pacific Ocean makes it home to 64 species of unique rainforest plants, teeming seabird colonies and one of the rarest birds in the world. Yet it remains only a couple of hours flight from either Sydney or Brisbane.

Travel on this island is done primarily by foot on an excellent network of walking trails that criss-cross the island’s volcanic landscape. The spectacular Lidgbird and Gower Mountains project above the surface of the ocean and lead to stunning views from every vantage point.

To maintain such an unspoilt paradise, the number of tourists to the island are restricted. Care and consideration from all visitors is vital to the preservation of this unique environment. We stay and dine at the amazing Arajilla Retreat ensuring that you’ll be wowed on and off the track.

Locals like to keep the Yuraygir Coastal Walk a closely guarded secret, and it’s no wonder once you discover its spectacular beaches, picturesque lagoons and the relaxed charm and character of its coastal villages.

The Yuraygir Coastal Walk begins at Iluka and Yamba, two settlements that hug either side of the majestic Clarence River. The walk throws a variety of experiences at you including coastal hiking, littoral rainforests, paperbark swamps, colourful heathlands, crystal clear creeks and lagoons and spectacular rock platforms. Graceful pandanus trees line the picture-perfect beaches on the longest stretch of protected coastline in New South Wales.

This coastline is punctuated with splendid rivers making access difficult, but we have arranged for boats to take you safely across. They have also allowed time each day to take a swim or just hang out on your own private stretch of untouched beach. As an added bonus, the walk links the picturesque villages of Yamba, Angourie, Brooms Head, Sandon River, Minnie Water, Wooli and Red Rock giving it a real inn-to-inn feel. This is a track less-walked, and it’s likely that you will have it to yourself.
