Fingal Head NSW
One of our very first trips was to Fingal Head NSW, we stayed at Tweed Coast Holiday Parks for 2 nights. The caravan park was very much how we like them - not too many awesome kid facilities so that they want to actually leave the park and explore! The park has a small playground for the kids, BBQ areas, toilets, showers and a laundry - if you don’t have a little home on wheels there are also cabins and glamping tents.
It did rain while we were there which worked in our favour, a double rainbow appeared and we spent most of the first afternoon running around beneath it. There is an amazing little lighthouse on the headland and the short walk to it is through a gorgeous coastal rainforest, perfect for little ones! The size of the lighthouse definitely won the kids over and they were running around checking out all of the tracks surrounding it.
The tracks lead off the main trail to either Dreamtime Beach or back to Letitia Spit, you could spend hours exploring the amazing basalt rock formations that were formed by nearby extinct Mt Warning (which is an AMAZING mountain climb!) after exploring the headland and rock pools we walked on to Dreamtime Beach. Dreamtime is absolutely stunning and feels very secluded, despite the freezing cold weather we all had to have a little swim in the crystal clear water.
Fingal is definitely a sleepy little town, but that’s something we love. Because of the weather and short stay we didn’t get to explore the town much, so a second trip is in order to find some awesome coffee and lunch spots! If you’re looking for somewhere to unwind, do a little beach exploring, swimming and maybe a surf without all the crowds - this is your place!
