Their is only one van park at Evans Head, Silver Sands and is a very good place to stay.

All within walking distance of the town.

We are booked in for a couple of nights next week. $33.50 a night. They told me in is NSW school holidays.

The c/grd office is near the Illawaong hotel (the only one) but before checking in, ask someone to show you the entrance to the camping area on the riverbank. It is actually nicer than the main camp although the facilities may be a bit further to walk to.
There are not a lot of eating houses in the shops area but the RSL has OK meals. The Illawong used to be OK - don't know now.
There is an interesting Italian settlers museum at New Italy ( a tragic story ) , 10kms sth of Woodburn on the Pac Hwy and they have very good coffee and
great cherry cake.
There is a little 'flying' museum behind the Council office and they have a lot of interesting stuff that relates to the war time when E H was a huge RAF gunnery and bomb training base. There's nothing left at the airfield now except one of the original Belman hangers.
A nice walk up the south side of the river (going west) to the Bunjalung reserve.
Also worth going to Chinamans beach on the other side of the river.

Back in 1954 I think it was, Queen Elizabeth flew into Evans Head as part of her Australian tour. As a 6 year old I think I remember it but maybe I only think I recall it.

Evans was a great place to live back then as a kid. The bridge wasn't there and around 500 population, 5000 at holiday times.

Those were the days.
