We checked out Arakwal National Park a week or so ago as part of our drive around Australia.

Such a beautiful area in Byron Bay! Great views and many places to explore along the coast. The path from the end of Scott Street down to Tallow Beach is lovely, quite an easy walk too.

What a great thing to do! The National Park will save Byron from being completely overrun by development.

this is a great place to go for a quiet walk or take the kids out on their bikes as it is safe and away from all traffic, you can access the beach several times on the track so if you feel like a swim go for it !!!!
