Trip highlights


  • Explore the secluded coast between Angourie and Red Rock
  • Spot an abundance of wildlife, including kangaroos, whales and birdlife
  • Enjoy ever-changing and expansive views of the ocean, rocky headlands and bushland
  • Hike in the beautiful Yuraygir National Park

The Yuraygir National Park is the largest coastal park in New South Wales and one of the most diverse bioregions in the country. From age-old coastal landforms, littoral rainforest, eucalypt forest, woodland and wetlands, you can see it all in Yuraygir National Park. The National Park is home to the stunning Yuraygir Coastal Track which follows the footsteps of the ancient coastal emus that once thrived in the park.

Over four days we walk southwards taking in the sweeping and ever-changing views. The park is home to an abundance of Australian native wildlife. As we walk we'll keep an eye out for kangaroos, white-bellied sea eagles, yellow-tailed black cockatoos, emus and whales. Carrying only a day pack, we'll walk along pristine beaches, cross creeks and rock hop across multiple small and remote beaches. In the afternoon we arrive at camp, with time to relax and enjoy a swim.

The 49 kilometre walk involves a series of tracks, trails, beaches and rock platforms that are linked by following the ‘coastal emu footprint’ marker. We hope you can join us on our exclusive new adventure.
