Welcome to Evans Head
Woodburn is a popular little stopover for weary travellers, 43 km south of Ballina via the Pacific Highway. A perfect spot to have a break, grab a hearty meal from one of the welcoming cafes and stroll across the road to the family friendly park right on the banks of the majestic Clarence River.
Or, spoil yourself and stay longer, as just ten minutes away is Evans Head the “Jewel in the Crown of the Richmond Valley”. Situated on the North Coast of New South Wales about 700km north of Sydney and 180 km south of Brisbane, the beautiful village boasts long, sweeping stretches of clean beaches and river estuaries. Evans Head is a peaceful coastal fishing village surrounded by National Parks and beautiful sandy beaches renowned for great surfing. Take the chance to refresh and reenergise yourself at the newly renovated Evans Head Bowls and Holiday Cabins, a great place to stay.
The Bundjalung National Park surrounds the town and offers scenic walks and the chance to spot some local wildlife. Appreciate the whole area by driving from the centre of town across the bridge, past the boat harbour, take the ocean drive and enjoy spectacular views from Razorback Lookout which is also ideal for whale watching.
In amongst all of the natural beauty, Evans Head hosts a unique Australian aviation event ‘The Great Eastern Fly In’. Pilots and their families and friends fly in from all over Australia to enjoy a great summer holiday with a difference and you too can have your own flying experience by visiting the renowned Memorial Aerodrome.
