Bongil Bongil National Park


Williams Road, Satwell, NSW

Bongil Bongil National Park is a diverse and very accessible national park located between Sawtell and Mylestom, about 15km south of Coffs Harbour.

The 4180ha park features unspoilt beaches, littoral and swamp rainforests, wetlands and mangroves, wet and dry heath, coastal dunes and pristine estuaries.

There’s also an array of rich and diverse plant and animal communities, referred to in its Aboriginal name Bongil Bongil, which means “a place where one stays a long time because of the abundance of food”.

Among the native animals you may encounter in the park are koalas, as the national park is home to one of the state’s largest koala populations. Bongil Bongil also offers refuge to 165 species of birds, including a number of threatened species.

The park’s waterways are ideal for kayaking, canoeing and fishing. A good place to launch your kayak or canoe is the pontoon at the Bongil Picnic Area on Williams Road at Bonville – at the northern end of the park. The picnic area further features BBQ facilities, a large undercover area, picnic tables and toilets.

Boating access to the park’s estuaries is via the Lyons Road boat ramp at Sawtell. For mountain bikers and bushwalkers, the popular Lyons Trail starts further west on Lyons Road at Toormina.

More bushwalking trails are found at the southern end of the park at the end of Tuckers Rock Road at Repton. The 1.8km Bluff Loop Trail offers a short return walk to Tuckers Rocks through some magnificent coastal eucalypt forest. The Bundageree Rainforest Walks from Tuckers Rocks.
