Emerald Beach & Look At Me Now Headland

Look At Me Now Headland walk is a short, easy walking route with fabulous scenic views far out to sea, a lookout and beach access.

Keep your fingers crossed for a breaching whale during winter and early spring. All year-round, you can see eastern grey kangaroos nibbling on the grass and white-bellied sea eagles, ospreys and brahminy kites soaring above the coastline on the hunt.

Take a picnic lunch and sit between the dwarf grass and rocky heath, which have adapted to these exposed conditions. You may spot a threatened zieria, which flowers pink and white in spring with glossy, tough leaves.

Look At Me Now Headland is an important Aboriginal site of deep significance to local Gumbaynggirr people. Preservation of this natural environment is also important to the broader community, and in 1989, over 5,000 people marched in a rally in Coffs Harbour to prevent the destruction of the headland and adjacent beaches. It worked.

Whilst dogs are prohibited on the headland, you may partake in some puppy playtime at the northern end of Emerald Beach. Please note: Emerald Beach is not patrolled.
