Arakwal National Park is a national park in New South Wales, Australia, 624 km north of Sydney and 2 km south of Cape Byron, the most easterly point of mainland Australia. The nearest town is Byron Bay. The park protects an area of Wallum country, of coastal clay heaths behind Tallow Beach, providing habitat to numerous bird species and two native frog species, the Wallum Froglet (Crinia tinnula) and Wallum Sedge Frog (Litoria olongburensis), both of which are deemed vulnerable to extinction.Traditionally the land of the Arakwal people, the park was proclaimed in 2001 after the Arakwal Indigenous community and the New South Wales state government reached a land use agreement. The Arakwal people are co-managers of the park.

  • Basically had the entire beach to myself which was both lovely and terrifying haha
