An unique opportunity to graffiti legally
Nambucca prides itself on its unique murals and sea creature mosaics. The River mural is just one example of Nambucca's uniqueness. The fish, dolphin and octopus mural wraps itself around the police station on the corner of Bowra Street. Heading towards the Vee Wall, you descend through Gordon Park Rainforest. Park at the bottom and walk the trails or you continue on to the Vee Wall.

Vee Wall

The Vee Wall at the end of Wellington Drive is the new hip place to be, mixing it with the local and international artists who frequently visit here leaving their artistic mark; from moving tributes to work with a sense of humour.

The diversity of artwork here is astounding. Everyone and anyone is welcome and encouraged to graffiti a rock and it's free.

The name Vee Wall came from the shape of the wall and mouth of the Nambucca River. It's a spectacular breakwall of painted boulders, paintings, poetry and cartoons, and there are no rules. The Vee Wall in 1990 was legalized as a graffiti gallery, turning this break wall into a tourist attraction

Across the Vee Wall is Stuart Island, an aboriginal reserve and sacred burial site.

The wall and its array of artwork finishes at Wellington Point. Dolphins and whales put on fantastic displays during migrating seasons.

Wellington Rock

Wellington Rock is stunning, surrounded by rock pools with the Pacific Ocean as its backdrop. Please use caution during high tide in this area. For divers there are 2 shipwrecks. In 1892, the SS Wellington sank off Nambucca Heads and in 1931 the SS Nambucca went aground at Wellington Point.

Return via the wall or complete the circuit walk to Captain Cook and Rotary look outs. There are restaurants, takeaways, a hotel, a barbeque and picnic area, lagoon and caravan park all within walking distance of the Vee Wall. The takeaway shop and visitors' centre sell limited fishing tackle and paints supplies.

For the avid fisherman, Nambucca is where you can snag a fish or two. Enjoy beach or river fishing, or try your luck along the Vee Wall. For those who just enjoy eating the fish, there are numerous seafood restaurants where you can enjoy the local catch, including fresh oysters. Nearby Warrell Creek is another popular area.
