After a leisurely lunch at Gummigurrah picnic area, put on your hiking boots for a medium walk along the picturesque Evans River. Located close to the Evans Head entrance, Gummigurrah walking track is your ideal introduction to the diverse delights of Bundjalung National Park on the north coast.
Passing through open woodland, lush rainforest and heathlands, you'll discover mangrove-lined creeks and scenic river islands. Arriving at a shady glen, stop for lovely views overlooking the river. Perfect for birdwatching, you might see pied oystercatchers, white-bellied sea eagles and brahminy kites.
The Gummigurrah area was once used as a winter camp for the Bundjalung people and the remains of a midden can be seen near the end of the walking track. Why not bring the canoe for a paddle along Canoe Evans River paddle route.
