Evans Head - one of the region's best kept secrets.
One of the region’s best kept secrets, the laidback fishing village of Evans Head is an attractive holiday destination for all travellers. Known as the ‘jewel in the crown of the Richmond Valley’, Evans Head boasts long unspoilt beaches, fantastic fishing, whale watching and a highly recommended surf break.
From Razorback Lookout on Goanna Headland and Dirawong Reserve you can take in breathtaking panoramic views of the coast. During the winter months, keep an eye out for whales migrating up and down the coastline.
The picturesque Evans River is ideal for on-water activities with two boat ramps, sandy river flats and a small boat harbour. The crystal clear, turquoise water is inviting year round and is accommodating for swimmers of all ages.
Evans Head is surrounded by national parks and river estuaries, giving you a natural setting to relax and explore the hidden gem of the Northern NSW coast. For 4WD access and dogs on the beach, visit the Council website here.
