Scotts Head offers great waves, most times of the year. It’s a spot to improve your surfing or take the opportunity to help the kids learn. It is very easy to relax in the water and if you soak up the respectful surfing vibe, you will be rewarded with making new surfing friends. Other great spots for surfing other than the main beach are Wakki Beach and Little Beach. When the swell is small you should still be able to find a wave at one of these three beaches as they all face slightly different directions.
No matter what your hobbies include, this surf town should have you covered! Whether it be whale watching on the headland, snorkelling with the marine life, bushwalking around the national parks, or you’re just keen to sit on the beach with a fresh coffee, Scotts Head is one you don’t want to miss.
From May to October, the Surf Club Headland and Elephant Head are great spots to watch dolphins and migrating humpback whales – sometimes you can even hear whale songs!
Rocky promontories make Scotts Head an ideal rock and beach fishing area. Boat ramps are located at the southern end of Main Beach and at Weir Reserve, Warrell Creek. The creek runs parallel to the coast from Nambucca Heads before turning west around the foothills of Mt Yarrahapinni, and provides 30 km of accessible river for boating, canoeing and kayaking. Fish, birdlife and native animals are in abundance.
You don’t need to bring provisions or a picnic lunch – the bakery, butcher, bottleshop, supermarket, takeaway, coffee shop, club bistro and even a local ‘fisho’ will ensure you don’t starve.
A drive through the Nambucca Valley will take you to miles of unspoilt beaches, seaside towns, heritage and rural villages, through productive farmland and rainforests to the foothills of the Great Dividing Range. This area rich in natural beauty, history and culture is well worth a visit so detour off the highway and discover the magic that is Nambucca Valley.
