Hallidays Point things to do – for free!
You know you are in Hallidays Point when you see the famous pine trees
Reminiscent of childhood holidays Hallidays Point is an absolutely cracking place to spend a summer (or winter holiday). Hallidays Point is actually comprised of several beachside suburbs on the mid-north coast of NSW which include Black Head, Diamond Beach, Red Head and Tallwoods Village. It is a popular holiday spot all year round.
Here’s our list of top free things to do in Hallidays Point.
1. Spend the day at Black Head Beach
Recognisable by its shady Norfolk Pines, Black Head Beach is a great spot to spend the day. With pristine waters, free BBQ’s, fishing spots, picnic tables, a playground and an ocean pool it is easy to while away the day here. The beach is patrolled during the summer months.
Address: Black Head Beach Road, Black Head NSW 2430
2. Enjoy a rainforest walk
A series of walking tracks was established in Hallidays Point by The NSW Lands Department in 1992. There are now five walks that extend across the area, taking in the shoreline and along through lagoons, parks and headlands.
Address: Refer to the walking map for directions
3. Go for a 4WD
If you have an off-road car why not take it for a spin on one of the local 4WD tracks.
You can also drive along the sand from North Black Head Beach to Tuncurry Beach (ensure you have an appropriate beach permit).
Address: Check map for details
4. Admire the view from the lookouts (and hopefully spot some whales!)
Black Head, Hallidays Point, was the recipient of a new whale watching lookout in 2016. This is a great spot to watch for whales (and dolphins) as well as take in the stunning view. You can also check out the lookouts at Red Head and Diamond Beach.

8. Go dolphin watching at Diamond Beach
Diamond Beach is a truly stunning beach that is perfect for walking, fishing or collecting shells. At 6 kilometres long it is also great for a morning run or jog. Known for the dolphins who visit it, Diamond Beach is a great morning out.
And if you have a little spare change at the end of your Hallidays Point holiday…
