Australia and New Zealand Mini Series Part 10: Urunga, New South Wales

Urunga Heads Boardwalk

This is the tenth in my series of short reflections on different places in Australia and New Zealand, which I visited in November 2019.

Whilst staying in Sawtell, New South Wales, we visited Urunga, just south of Sawtell.

Here we walked along the boardwalk out through the mangrove swamps towards Urunga Heads, where the massive surf of the Coral Sea forms a bar between two headlands. Treacherous rip currents meet calm protected water in the lagoon thus formed.

The outlook along the boardwalk was enchanting, gentle, touching. Here, as in other tourist destinations in Australia, the information signage along the boardwalk was excellent. We had plenty of time to gaze at the outstanding coastal scenery as we walked along the boardwalk. It was almost dreamlike in its beauty: so a stroll along the boardwalk can become meditative.

Later we visited another spectacular point on the New South Wales coastline: Smoky Cape at South West Rocks. More about them on my next post, which will be number eleven in this series.
