Bound by the native bushland of Bundjalung National Park, this secluded beach is a short drive from Evans Head township.

You'll enjoy endless coastal views from walking trails onto Goanna Headland where interpretive signs explain the significance of this site to the Aboriginal people. Conditions can be rough here when the winds drive in from the south-west to north-west, creating a south-east to north-east swell. Chinaman's Beach is not patrolled making it best for experienced surfers only. At low tide there are many rock pools to be explored in the area between the beach and New Zealander's beach before walking to Snapper Rock. Beaches south of Snapper Rock are closed to the public due to the proximity of the bombing range.

Evans Head Beach

Along the coast, Evans Head NSW 2473
The surf at Evans Head is ideal for inexperienced surfers because it enjoys protection from the big southeast swells that get the local big-wave riders excited. The river estuary that divides the town attracts lots of ocean wildlife and there's great fishing in the river itself off the beach. Other fixtures in Evans Head are an osprey's nest near the tiny boat harbour that's home to the state's first prawn-fishing fleet. The beach is more exposed and the rips more variable the further north you go. This quiet town of around 3,000 people is home to the largest caravan park on Australia's East Coast, so the population swells whenever school's out. Bordered by National Parks on three sides, Evans Head is brilliantly situated and the caravan park/campground's beachside and river-front location means that once you arrive, you can park your car and leave it for the duration of your stay.

Shark Bay

Ocean Drive, Evans Head NSW 2473
Shark Bay is a small, semi-secluded beach next to the southern break wall of the Evans River. It is very popular with board riders and families with small children. The board riders like riding the waves that sweep around the headland on the early morning rising tides. Families with small children like the beach because it is much easier to keep an eye on your children as the beach is hemmed in on both sides with rock walls. The car park is extremely close by making the walk to the sand much easier is a cement pathway. When there is a high tide though, the beach will most probably be covered in water.

Carnivale Italiano

Pacific Highway, Woodburn ACT 2472
Celebrate the area's rich history of Italian settlement at the Carnivale Italiano, a celebration of all things Italian. The descendants of New Italy will celebrate the anniversary of fifty Italian families who immigrated to Australia in April 1881. The knowledge that has passed down through the generations has seeped into the Australian psyche - the love of fresh Italian food, Italian wine and Italian music. Carnivale Italiano is a day to immerse in this culture. The day commemorates the original immigrants who settled at New Italy. These Venetians, mostly contadini - tillers of the soil - fulfilled a desire to escape the harshness of their homeland to sail to paradise. What took place was anything but that and this story is now part of the historical makeup of the Northern Rivers region of NSW. Come celebrate!...
