Iluka has long been famous for fishing and serious anglers never visit without a frypan in the fishing gear. People also come to this beautiful coastal town to experience one of Australia’s rarest and most accessible rainforest remnants.

The World Heritage listed Iluka Nature Reserve contains the largest remnant of littoral rainforest in NSW. It supports rich vegetation and abundant bird and wildlife.

Iluka Bluff has an excellent surfing beach and a great lookout platform with panoramic views – ideal for whale-watching. There is a netted swimming area at Iluka Bay and beautiful beaches with picnic areas at Back beach, Frazers Reef and Woody Head.

Surfers and fisherman love the natural charm of Iluka.

A walk along the sea wall is the perfect way to unwind – or just sit, meditate and marvel at the tranquility. This is a playground for dolphins. Take a trip on the local passenger ferry across the mouth of the river to Yamba for the day. At dawn and dusk watch the trawlers make their way to and from the harbour.

And there’s no shortage of excellent accommodation options: three caravan parks, a motel and many holiday apartments/self contained accommodation to choose from.

There are a number of art & craft galleries in Iluka and the nearby Woombah for visitors to browse, enjoying the wealth of local artistic talent.

Play a round with some kangaroos and emus at the local 9-hole golf course, have a relaxing game of bowls, or a refreshing game of tennis at the nearby courts.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
