Northern NSW is a biodiversity hotspot. Off the coast, in the Solitary Island Marine Park you will find whales, dolphins, turtles and more. On the waterways, beaches and skies, look out for ospreys, sea eagles, kites, terns, muttonbirds and many more shore and waterbirds. The forests and heathlands are also alive with birdlife. There are wallabies, kangaroos on the headlands, echidnas, snakes (lots!), land mullets – walk quietly and keep a lookout. No shortage of spiders or insects either!
