Crescent Head NSW 2440, Australia
Goolawah National Park - Crescent Head
Stunning long beaches and scenery. The best place in the world to just unwind.
Come and be captivated by the uncrowded beaches and pristine headlands of Goolawah National Park, near Kempsey on the NSW North Coast. Roaming through these coastal surroundings, you can't help feeling you've landed in a place
untouched by time.
Comprising a narrow strip of mostly beachfront land, the park runs south from the outskirts of Crescent Head village to Racecourse Headland, where it links with Goolawah Regional Park.
Here, biological diversity combines with significant Aboriginal heritage. The beaches are secluded and pure, bounded by exquisite native plant life rather than carparks or cafes. A left-hand point break beckons to surfers, while spectacular rocky shores, reefs and a lagoon provide the ideal setting for snorkeling or swimming. Go birdwatching or whale watching, spot dolphins and turtles, or scan the bush for koalas or dingoes. www.nationalparks.nsw.gov.au/goolawah-national-park

Crescent Head National Surfing Reserve
Crescent Head was the first stop for surfers heading north from Sydney in pursuit of the perfect wave. Since the 1950's, surfers have been attracted to this area to experience the quality of the wave and the unique natural environment. The coastal beauty and pristine beaches of Crescent Head continue to attract surfers and visitors from throughout Australia and overseas.
Crescent head, traditional country of the Dunghutti people, is home to osprey, sea eagles, pelicans, dolphins and migrating whales.
National Surfing Reservers recognise sites of cultural and historical significance in Australian surfing. They acknowledge the surfing way of the life and link past, present and future generations with our oceans, waves and coastlines.
The Crescent Head Community asks you to SHARE RESPECT AND PRESERVE.
Crescent Head is one of the few places in Australia where the spirit of the 1960s surfing counter-culture lives on, an easy-going “share the ocean” vibe still embraced by the local surfing tribes.
Along this magical stretch of coastline north of Port Macquarie are four perfect right-hand point-breaks, tailor-made for malibu riders, grommets and beginners and capable of generating miracle rides of up to 250 metres. Six northern corners along here also produce anything from crazy left-hand wedges to gentle blue fun in the sun.
About halfway between Crescent Head and Point Plomer is the brilliantly named Delicate Nobby, a wedge-shaped rock formation that starts just off the beach and spears out into the Pacific. There are rideable beach breaks either side with solid banks that can deliver a fair bit of grunt.
The campground here (west side of Point Plomer Road) is easy to drive past unawares and it’s an ideal stop-off for anyone on a camping surf safari. Crescent Head’s main campground is situated right on the headland by its famous postcard break.
In June 2008, Crescent Head, home of the Dunghutti people, was declared a National Surfing Reserve, the fourth site in Australia to be recognised for its special significance to surfing.
