The Great Lighthouse walk is not to be missed plus it is a 10 minute scenic walk into town from the park. There are walking paths throughout Byron Bay to allow visitors to explore and take in the beautiful scenery.
Ideal for nature walks to the headland, superb coastal views where you can watch whales (June to November) or dolphins (December to March).

Taking a walk along the Urunga footbridge is an experience not to be missed. Extending across the calm waters of the lagoon, with gentle breezes blowing across the water, the footbridge allows tourists a rare glimpse of the abundant wildlife living along the foreshore. Sand crabs burrowing into the sand, pelicans and seagulls splashing in the water, soldier crabs scurrying through the mangrove roots and the sound of waves crashing onto the break wall provide a perfect back drop for a stroll along the footbridge at any time of day. All of this and more is within walking distance of all camp sites and cabins.
There are some great bushwalks directly from the Hungry Head Cabins – from short exploratory walks to the more adventurous walks including the 7km walk to Urunga Heads. Hungry Head to Wenonah Head loop is a 13km walk and the Urunga foreshore return walk is 3km.
There are kilometres of beach to walk along. The Gumma Garra walking track takes you along various aboriginal landmarks. For nature lovers, the vast area of land that is part of the National Parks surrounding Evans Head is great for walking. Bundjalung National Park, Goanna Headland and Broadwater National Park.
The Bicentennial coastal walk commences on the doorstep, passing over Pilot Hill joining Forster main beach and continuing past the ocean baths on Forster Beach. It leads eastwards over Second Head along the foreshore, between Bennetts Head Road and the ocean, past The Tanks, through Bennetts Head Reserve and south past One Mile Beach to Burgess Beach.
For something a bit more strenuous, head up to Cape Hawke Lookout. This lookout gives visitors (those who are fit enough to climb it!) the best view of Forster/Tuncurry. It's not the easiest to get to the top of but if you take your time you will be rewarded on a clear day with a truly magnificent view stretching far across the twin towns. Views extend north, south, east and west as far as the eye can see!
Explore some of the most breathtaking scenery and picturesque beauty Hawks Nest has to offer. Roads and tracks in the area are generally flat.

Why not head to the Myall Lake National park, where you can find a range of walks to suit all levels, from a 30 minute rainforest walk to a 21 km track to bush walk.
