Most people are in town for one thing – the beaches. Arakwal National Park comes with a secluded scythe of sand and forest backdrop. The Wreck does exactly what it says on the tin, so expect a protruding shipwreck and some first-class surf. Meanwhile, Wategos Beach serves up a campsite by the sand.
