Hungry Head Headland is located just south of the Urunga seaside village where the beach still exists in its natural setting with the headland overlooking the beach and mouth of Dalhousie Creek.
The area is surrounded by littoral rainforest with an array of native animals including kangaroos, wallabies to kookaburras and currawongs. The Hungry Head Beach is a great spot for surfing and is patrolled during school holidays.
The Urunga Boardwalk is one of the best boardwalks on the east coast, with spectacular views from the entire length of the boardwalk. Starting from the charming town of Urunga, the boardwalk passes along the banks of the Kalang River, to the junction with the Bellinger River and out to the ocean, with stunning views inland past Urunga town and up the river valleys to the Great Dividing Range, north across the rivers to Mylestom Spit and south along the beach to Picket Hill and beyond to Nambucca Heads.
