Situated near Obadiah Residential Village and nestled in the shadow of the Three Brothers Mountains, beside the Pacific Ocean and Watson Taylor Lake, with Diamond Head at its core, Crowdy Bay National Park is one of the outstanding coastal national parks of NSW.
One of the park's attractions is the golden sand crescent of Dunbogan Beach stretching from Camden Head to Diamond Head in the south. The long expanse of Kylie's Beach continues south down the coast to the tall Crowdy Head east of Harrington.
Crowdy Bay National Park offers an abundance of wildflowers, birds and animals, bushwalking, swimming and fishing in 8,022 hectares of coastal plains. There are long sweeping beaches north and south, extensive wetlands, rainforest pockets and coastal heath featuring beautiful wildflowers.
Australian author Kylie Tennant spent time living and writing here, and her hut which was used as a writing retreat has been restored and maintained.
Walking trails include the cliff walk, rock platforms and stony beaches and offer sections with eroding rock formations and towering rock spits. At low tide you can explore the rocks and pools below the cliffs. There's good fishing, bird watching and fascinating headland walks with abundant wildlife.
