Arakwal National Park is an important part of the heritage of the local aboriginal Arakwal people that lend it their name. It is a natural haven to escape the bustling town for a few hours of quiet amidst nature. The Park includes the Tallow Beach, which is perfect for surfing and swimming. The Arkawal National Park is also home to several endangered species of plant and is a pit stop for migratory animals.

During the migratory season one can watch the humpback whales as they make their annual journey. The Arakwal National Park is located 2.3 km from Byron Bay town center and the best way to approach it is from the Cosy Corner car park and walking the rest of the way. Nature lovers will delight in the lush greenery around them and water-babies can enjoy the beach.

Arakwal National Park, Byron Bay Reviews - Write a Review

  • great tracks to Tallow Beach in Byron Bay lots of Native Vegetation to see and enjoy

  • Great view to Byron. Also Australias most Eastern point is located here.

  • Only visited the tea tree oil lake. Relaxing. Short walk through national park to get to this lake. Colour is yellow because it has tea tree leaves in it giving it antiseptic properties.

  • The walk to the lighthouse (return) is worthwhile

  • The National Park is good for walking in subtropical forests and you have the possibility to hear the sounds of the Pacific ocean
