Eatonsville: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Iluka Main Beach


Main beach is a long sandy beach popular for surfing particularly at the wall and at the northern end. This is a dog friendly beach, but visitors must adhere to the signage. The adjacent car park has plenty of parking, toilets and cold water showers. 4WD vehicles can be taken onto the beach at low tide after having first obtained a permit from council.

At the northern end of the beach the remains of the old railway tracks can be seen at low tide with the occasional wheel emerging from the sands. This is a remnant from the tramway erected to carry rock from the headland used to create the stabilizing North Wall. A curious rock formation can be sighted and has been referred to as the Tsunami stack.

Clarence Gorge


Located within one and a half hours drive, north-west of Grafton is this rugged gorge where thundering waterfalls and savage rapids intermingle with deep pools and sections of calm water. The scenery is breathtaking and the fishing is excellent. There are three main waterfalls and the Rainbow Falls live up to their name on sunny days.

There are guided 4WD tours available but most visitors enjoy overnight stays at one of the properties that line the gorge. It must be emphasised that the Clarence Gorge is enclosed by private property on both sides. These properties operate as farm stay businesses and can accommodate campers.

Please contact the Clarence River Visitor Information Centre in Grafton to obtain these operators details.

A visit to the gorge cannot be achieved in a few hours without any planning and prior arrangements, but those who make the effort are inevitably inspired by their adventure.
