INTRODUCTION

Bongil Bongil National Park is located about 20km south of Coffs Harbour and just south of Sawtell, to the east of the Pacific Highway, preserving some 1 250 hectares of coastal land. The park contains North and Bonville Beaches, rainforest and wetlands. On the western side of the park lies the Pine Creek State Forest.

Access to the park is difficult, being mainly by the Tuckers Rock Road in the south and both Williams and Lyons Road in the north. Access can also be gained via Overhead Bridge Road and School Road.

Some 165 species of birds have been recorded in the national park.

Bundagen Headland Track:

The Bundagen Headland Track (Bundageree Rainforest Walk - 6km return) begins at Tuckers Rocks (at the end of Tuckers Rocks Road) and makes its way to Bundagen Headland. This is an easy stroll through rainforest, not far from Bundageree Creek.
