Walk From Urunga to Hungry Head

I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.

Starting at the Urunga boardwalk, adjacent to the caravan park, the 7km return walk is easy and relaxing and suitable for the whole family. You have the choice to walk the beach both ways or return via the shared path that follows Hungry Head Road past the lagoon to Urunga.

The very popular wheelchair accessible boardwalk is about 1 km in length and offers spectacular viewing opportunities of the Bellinger River, Kalang River, the lagoon and hinterland.

The beach is dog-friendly and can be accessed by 4WD at the southern end as long as one has a permit. As you leave the boardwalk onto the beach, you will leave the crowds behind and start reaping the benefits of walking on sand.

Hungry Head is much more natural and far less populated than Urunga. Surfers and fishermen can be observed enjoying the natural environment of the rare littoral rainforest that is also home to a variety of native fauna and bird species. The beach is patrolled in school holidays (check COVID-19 restrictions) and the Dalhousie Creek inlet is a fun paddling place for children. There are toilet facilities at Hungry Head but nowhere to purchase food and drink so take some supplies with you.
