National Parks


NSW North Coast - Broadwater National Park

A great place for enjoying the beach, and perfect for birdwatching and wildflower displays when the heath is in bloom.

The park is home to paperbarks, bush pea, bush orchids, black sheoaks, roughbarked apple, red and yellow Christmas bells, swamp lily and brilliant flowering banksias.

Take the Salty Lagoon walk, which passes through undisturbed salt marsh, swamp forest and 60,000-year-old dunes. The picnic area and lookout off the Broadwater-Evans Head Road are also well worth a visit.

3 km north of Evans Head, via the Broadwater-Evans Head Road
