Discover Crescent Head

Crescent Head is a coastal destination on the Macleay Valley Coast.

A short drive from the Pacific Highway just south of Kempsey, the town of Crescent Head is considered to have some of Australia’s best beaches. The area takes in Killick Beach, Goolawah Beach, Delicate Beach and Barries Beach/Point Plomer.  For pristine coastal locations, this area of the Macleay is an ideal holiday destination for the whole family and especially for keen surfers.

Unlike some of Australia’s other world famous surf breaks, Crescent Head is a nationally protected Surfing Reserve where the town still has all the charm of coastal towns of yesteryear. Not a lot has changed and the relaxed surfing vibe filters through the area.  There is a variety of unique family holiday accommodation in Crescent Head, making it the perfect destination for a relaxing escape to a small coastal town on the North Coast of NSW.

Things to do? Take a surf lesson or hire a Stand Up Paddle board with On Point Surf School, admire the view whilst you tee off at Crescent Head Golf Course or grab a bite to eat from the well renown Barnett’s bakery.

For keen surfers, the area is known for its four sets of reef breaks where surfers can be out for hours enjoying this stretch of ocean and the pristine beaches.  The protection of 60km of National Park make Crescent Head an awe inspiring location and combine this with the most cracking cold milkshakes and coast views, pack up the Kombi and the family for your next north coast holiday at Crescent Head.  Pack the Malibu boards, the kids bikes and visit Crescent Head for soft serve ice cream and delicious eateries to grab a bite to eat.
