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 Reviews & Ratings
Love it. Tallow beach is awesome. Great waves bit hard for newbie surfers. A little rippy watch it. Great for dogs at the other end. 10/10 on the bear surf report
Great place to swim and wade about. Water temperature is warmer than the ocean. Usually the place is more secluded than other places in the area. There is a beach here too to swim in
So close to Byron Bay, amazing foresight to save a piece of natural bush next to the beach, at least it won't be shaded by high-rise buildings. Beautiful area of Australia, check it out next time in the region. Will be back
Pristine location and most easterly point of Australia was 👌
Beautiful waves. And we were the only ones on the beach!
