Crescent Head Area

Crescent Head is a beach side community 440 km north-northeast of Sydney, in New South Wales, Australia in Kempsey Shire. At the 2006 census, Crescent Head had a  population of 1,076 people. Its major industries include tourism and fishing. It has a small golf course overlooking the sea.

Few places can compare with the stunning features that nature has gifted to Crescent Head. The headlands known as "Big Nobby" and "Little Nobby" sweep around on the northern side creating the world renowned "Point Break" for surfers as well as a safe family friendly beach with tidal creek and lagoon. The creek and lagoon offer a beautiful and peaceful setting for kids to paddle in the shallows, fisherman to cast a line or for both young and old to explore in canoes etc.     

Overlooking the point is one of Australia's most picturesque and unique golf courses. The six hole course is set at the eastern end of the village between Big Nobby and Little Nobby and its green rolling open spaces are an intrinsic part of the villages beauty and appeal.

The point itself has recently joined such iconic locations as Bells Beach and Angourie as a National Surf Reserve which recognises its significance to the development of Australian Surfing and ensures its protection for future generations to enjoy.

Once you have experienced the lifestyle Crescent Head has to offer you'll want to return again and again.
