Hastings Point NSW

Hastings Point Beach at sunrise

Hastings Point is located in the Tweed Shire of Northern NSW around halfway between Byron Bay and Surfers Paradise. The area is known as the ‘Jewel of the Tweed’ as it is surrounded by what’s known as the big 4 – the ocean, a national park and reserve, a beautiful estuary and a large stretch of native vegetation. I am staying at the Hastings Point Caravan park which is right opposite the beach next to the bridge.

The beach is tidal. When the tide is high, it is full of water an at low tide, there is just sand. Hastings Point is a spectacular place for bird-watching and bush walking, the two going hand in hand with each other. Here you can see a large variety of bird species including Indigo Buntings, Albatross, Australian finches and fragile shore nesting birds such as the Little Tern, Beach Stone Curlew, Red-Capped Plovers and both the Sooty and Australian Pied Oystercatchers. 

The Cudgera River runs along the side and the back of the Caravan park….and here are mangroves where people put crab pots out and fish, and where water birds hangout waiting for the fishermen’s handouts. You can walk along the bank of the mangroves that edge the river
