Gaagal Wanggaan National Park

Overview

Gaagal Wanggaan (South Beach) National Park offers a variety of water activities and other great things to do like kayaking, swimming, boating and fishing.

Some places are so special they demand protection, and such was the case with the stretch of coastal land between Nambucca Heads and Scotts Head, near Macksville. Home to the local Gumbaynggirr People, this area was recognised as a vital spot for state preservation on 23 April, 2010, in a joint management agreement with the Traditional Owners.

Encompassing Warrell Creek, Gaagal Wanggaan (South Beach) National Park covers an undisturbed coastal dune system, littoral rainforest, shrubland, and estuarine mangroves – covers, in short, a variety of breathtaking natural environments that teem with migratory wildlife and precious endangered species.

Visitors to the park will find a unique marine playground perfect for boating, fishing, and canoeing. Beach tracks lead to short forest hikes, and secluded camping sites accessible by boat or canoe from Warrell Creek make it an ideal spot for an enjoyable camping weekend.

Bring your binoculars and swimmers for a lazy afternoon of birdwatching and swimming, or bring a kayak or canoe and go kayaking or canoeing along tranquil Warrell Creek as the sun goes down.

My meditation spot facing the sea and sunrise at Scott's Head. As I projected the Naam I was joined by some creatures elevating me to another level......✨“when a person gets up in the morning and does sadhana, you know what accompanies that person? All the angels, all saints and sages come to listen. Their souls fly to those places to listen where God is chanted.” Yogi Bhajan  #waheguruji #satnam #gratitude #gaagalwanggaan #masterpiece #seascape #mantravibes
