We had 3 days in Iluka at the Anchorage Holiday Park and loved the quite seaside village. The walks along the seaside were great easy and spectacular and the coffee shops in the quaint little town served great food and coffee. Will definitely visit again...More

Stopped here on a couple of occasions. Large grassed area to walk the dogs, plenty of parking and room for those towing caravans/trailers, and enjoyed the food provided by Olivers. Also good information centre.

We loved Iluka. Stayed on the water and access to launch canoe and kayaks was incredibly easy. Lots of fish around but not so for us. Rode bikes everywhere and is very flat and bike friendly. Very quiet but people friendly and welcoming.
