CRESCENT HEAD is a seaside village in the Macleay Valley located on the eastern coast of N.S.W., in Australia. The coastline is on the Tasman Sea and Killick Beach is known as one of Australia's best surf beaches, and serves as the location for the annual Crescent Head Malibu Classic. The world-famous break here is one of the longest rides in Australia.
Goolwah National Park is located in close proximity and is a perfect spot for bird and whale watching ( May - November). Dolphins, dingos, turtles and koala can also been seen in the park. The park is full of banksia trees and melaleucas.
Limeburners Creek National Park features significant Aboriginal cultural heritage sites that dates back thousands of years. Big Hill rainforest walking track provides scenic coastal views and lush wildlife. The walking track includes rainforest vegetation and coastal blackbutt trees.
To the north is the Hat Head National Park.
The Aboriginal custodians of the land are the Kundabung people.
Crescent Head is a great place to recharge yourself and there is a large caravan park in the centre of town, along the creek as well as many other accomodation options available to suit all budgets.
All this is only a 1 1/2 hour drive from Coffs Harbour or a 45 minute drive from Port Macquarie (both have airports with flights available from major cities)
