Evans Head

It’s been over 25 yrs since we were last at Evans Head at an Easter camp. Things have certainly changed, we noticed several new buildings as we drove in, we are yet to walk around town.

We have booked into the Silversands Holiday Park for 2 nights on an unpowered site $21.50 per night and 20 cents for a 5 min shower. We are on one of those sites you walked past and wished you were camping there. Totally river frontage on Evans River, large site with no one near us. Awesome view over the river and only a short walk to the beach. We have some entertainment tonight watching people playing night tennis at the courts near us. We do have a walk way and bike path right out the front but during the weekend shouldn’t be an issue.

The Coffs caravan club has taken over most of the power sites in the area, the office people kindly warned us not to camp too close. There are about 70 vans in the group, we walked past when they were having happy hour, talk about a noisy bunch all having a ball.

It’s so much cooler here, lovely sea breeze no bugs to speak off, some sand flies are about at night so have covered up.


There is still plenty of bird life, some kookaburras are laughing in some near by trees. Maybe laughing at the people playing tennis. We have see some Blue Headed Honey Eaters, some Minor birds, a Sea Hawk of some kind in one of the trees above us and sand crabs.
