Nambucca Heads is a popular north coast holiday spot, with the township stretching from a ridge over the Nambucca Valley to the mouth of the Nambucca River. While it has much to offer fishermen, golfers, swimmers, and walkers, cycling is constrained by steep hills and limited paths. Still, it’s a very pretty place to explore on two wheels.
We stayed at the Albatross Holidays cabin park, adjacent to the tourist attraction known as the V-Wall, a 500 metre seawall of painted rocks.
There is a short, shared path that follows the Nambucca River, and a cycle path that runs for about 6 kms out of town but then stops suddenly, forcing riders onto an 80kph narrow road (at which point I turned back).
There are several panoramic lookouts on the ridgeline; an ebike makes it easy tackling the steep hills.
Unlike Port Macquarie, Lennox Heads and Ballina, Nambucca Heads is not a cycling destination. But it is a lovely spot for an overnight stay. This 90 sec GoPro clip shows some of the V Wall and River path.
