About Angourie

Population 300

This small little village is one of the best surfing spots in Australia for the more experienced surfer. Former World Champion surfer Nat Young put this place on the map in the 70's and today it has become an essential stopover for the dedicated surfer looking for the perfect right-handed point break.

The village itself is small with not much more than a general store. There is the well-known swimming hole called the "Blue Pool" located right near the beach. It is actually an old rock-quarry, which has filled with fresh water (although check the signs to see if it is safe to swim as sometimes there is algae growth).

Angourie is also located at the northern tip of Yuraygir National Park. The park has over 40km of stunning coastline, which includes deserted beaches and rocky headlands. The park is an excellent place for fishing, swimming, canoeing, kayaking and of course surfing.

For the bushwalkers, the Angourie walking track is regarded as one of the most stunning and picturesque coastal walks in Australia because of the magnificent coastline it showcases.
