One of the prettiest townships on the North Coast, Nambucca Heads is a holiday resort, fishing and oyster-farming town lying at the mouth of the Nambucca River. Forestry areas almost surround the town which serves a rural district and the tourist playground of the beautiful Nambucca Valley.
Nambucca Heads offers a relaxed lifestyle with a pleasant subtropical climate and safe golden beaches. Vistas of surf and river, hills and long, flat stretches of bush and sand dunes can be seen from three lookouts - Rotary, Captain Cook and Lions. The clear tranquil waters of the river and easily accessible foreshores ensure fishing, boating and swimming are popular pastimes. Nambucca Heads Island Gold Course is in the middle of the river and is the only island used exclusively as a golf course in Australia.
