Things to do around Mullaway, NSW

20191023-_DSF3664

Beautiful Mullaway Headland and Beach is a stone’s throw from Coffs Harbour on the north coast. Visit pristine estuaries, conservation parks, beaches, dense forests and more with plenty of things to do. Hike the coastal trails for sensational views of waterfalls, steep cliffs, rock ledges and local islands or surf, swim, fish and enjoy a beachside BBQ. Fry up your catch, or buy fish if they’re not biting, then relax among the paperbark trees while the kids play on the swings.

There’s a great local burger place and the super shakes just taste creamier here as you slurp away with one eye on the beach. Locals boast they have the friendliest pub on the east coast and you’ll be welcome.

Woolgoolga is only 7 kms away with plenty of cafes & multi-cultural restaurants too. Mullaway is an ideal destination any time of year with surfing lessons and pet friendly beaches.

Mullaway is 6hrs drive north of Sydney and 3.40 hrs south of Brisbane
