Thanks, uncle B recommending this place to us. This coastal and very hilly town was relaxing, and obviously suitable for people who just want to unwind. Nambucca Heads offers uncrowded beaches, scenic lookouts and views, water activities both on the river and ocean, and shady walking trails. Though we didn’t have enough time to explore any trails, we repeatedly enjoyed the lookouts and the V Wall.
The approximately 600m break wall at the entrance of the Nambucca River was painted by visitors and locals alike. The impressive artworks, painted/written holiday memories and inspirational messages made walking there a unique experience. Unique because it was supposed to be fun, right? But reading some of the things written about death (plenty of them) and heartbreaks made me feel a bit melancholic.
Anyway, we walked along and around the V Wall a few times during this trip. Walking there was still generally enjoyable especially while having our take-away coffee, and when the dolphins decided to show up… just refrain from reading stuff along the way 😁
Where did we stay?
Tasman Holiday Park: Very friendly reception, Sue. Affordable than most around the area. It’s very close to the beach. Internet connection was free and fast too. The kitchen was small and amenities basic. Space was good enough for our vehicle size.
