Evans Head Beach

The surf at Evans Head is ideal for inexperienced surfers because it enjoys protection from the big southeast swells that get the local big-wave riders excited.

The river estuary that divides the town attracts lots of ocean wildlife and there's great fishing in the river itself off the beach. Other fixtures in Evans Head are an osprey's nest near the tiny boat harbour that's home to the state's first prawn-fishing fleet. The beach is more exposed and the rips more variable the further north you go.

This quiet town of around 3,000 people is home to the largest caravan park on Australia's East Coast, so the population swells whenever school's out.

Bordered by National Parks on three sides, Evans Head is brilliantly situated and the caravan park/campground's beachside and river-front location means that once you arrive, you can park your car and leave it for the duration of your stay.

Shark Bay

Shark Bay is a small, semi-secluded beach next to the southern break wall of the Evans River.

It is very popular with board riders and families with small children.

The board riders like riding the waves that sweep around the headland on the early morning rising tides.

Families with small children like the beach because it is much easier to keep an eye on your children as the beach is hemmed in on both sides with rock walls. The car park is extremely close by making the walk to the sand much easier is a cement pathway. This beach is not patrolled.

When there is a high tide though, the beach will most probably be covered in water.
