Arakwal National Park - Review

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

  • 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

  • Lovely NP. Very few tracks to follow to enjoy the beauty and listen to the birds. All tracks except one are suburb to beach. Could be improved !

  • Its awesome we seen wallabies n all

  • Byron Bay is a gorgeous place to visit. Byron Bay lighthouse is worth a visit. Views, history, coffee...who can resist?

  • Good walking paths nice little nature park good for little ankle biters to home there Steve Irwin skills on has outdoor barbies But stay on main paths dont go outback or you come across snakes Lizards. But all paths will bring you the beach
