Crowdy Head is accessed via a good sealed 7km road from Harrington, a short distance from the Pacific Highway just north of Taree on the NSW Mid North Coast.
Crowdy Head,geographically, is a Tombola, an island joined to the mainland by a sandspit. A small fishing village with a small boat harbour,Crowdy Head is a great place to take in majestic views up and down the coast with an 1878 built lighthouse
perched on top of the high hill commanding excellent vistas to Cape Hawke in the south and Port Macquarie in the north.
We stayed at the the Crowdy Head Motel
and all the cloud shots of Middle Brother Mountain were taken right out front.
Access to Diamond Head and Dunbogan is via the gravel road through the Crowdy Bay National Park or as we did, by driving up the beaches by 4 wheel drive.
Good camping grounds are to be found at Kylies Beach and with full facilities at Diamond Head.
In the hinterland are the 3 Brother Mountains-South Brother,Middle Brother and overlooking Laurieton,Camden Haven and Dunbogan,North Brother Mountain.
We travelled up the 2 main beaches,Crowdy Beach and then Dunbogan Beach and eventually finished up at Kattang Nature Reserve and a quick swim at Gogleys Bay inside the Camden Haven River breakwall river entrance.
