Arakwal National Park

Offering over 450 acres (183 hectares) of national rainforest, The Arakwal National Park, stretches from Australia’s most easterly point, at the Bryon Bay lighthouse, south along Tallow Beach for nearly two kilometres.

The Bundajalun of Byron Bay (Arakwal) Peoples’ connection to the reserve was recognised in 2001, when an Indigenous Land use Agreement was signed with the NSW State Government.

Co-managed by NPSW and its traditional owners, Arakwal features 3km of beach bordered by sand dunes and rich heath.

Nature enthusiasts will enjoy the abundant plant life as the park is a habitat for threatened plant species. It is also a haven to migratory birds and animals.

Arakwal National Park – Cape Byron is located 2.3 km from the town centre. It can be accessed from Cosy Corner carpark at the end of Tallow Beach Road.
