It's a well - thought out trip,especially if walking the dog, riding bikes with family. An unspoilt part of the small amount of wilderness, even "friendly wilderness" which can be enjoyed by all age groups.

Take time to enjoy this as time is as long as the moment you take to believe in such beauty. Take walk along a beach enter a palm forest and climb coastal escapement with vies of surf peeling dolphins sharing waves turtles and sharks living together with whales diving into golden pink clouds electrified by summer storms.

Tallow beach and it's lagoons are a bit of paradise. The mood of the beach changes hour by hour, day by day. No two walks are ever the same. Erosion and rising seas pose a risk to this precious environment.

Beautiful walk to pristine Tallows Beach. See abundant bird life and occasionally a wallaby. This is a national park so it is a dog free zone.

Probably the best park and beach in Byron. Never crowded and beautiful. No lifeguards but plenty of other beaches have them if you are not confident in the surf. Great cultural significance to local aboriginal people.

you can look over the Park from the lighthouse but there's not much you can do in the park itself except for a few beach access tracks. Fabulous rare heathland now protected forever
