Imagine the delight of the traveller who detours from the Pacific Highway and is greeted by the magnificent vista of the Nambucca River meeting the sea. The breathtaking views from Captain Cook and Rotary Lookouts catapult the visitor into a real-life postcard. Fabulous beaches and coastal scenery await those who wind their way down to the headland or take a walk along the outdoor graffiti gallery known locally as the V-Wall.
The hustle of the Pacific Highway fades into a dim memory as visitors wander up the main street of Nambucca Heads: the town has become even more popular since the highway bypassed it. So take a stroll, bag a bargain, update your beachwear … just relax and enjoy this historic friendly town.
Nambucca Heads was an important coastal port with ship building and timber mills as the main industries in the 1800s and early 1900s. The Shire Council’s investment in a system of boardwalks and storyboards along the waterfront will guide the discerning visitor through the town’s change of fortunes.
