Silver Sands Holiday Park - Evans Head NSW
Evans Head is just 10 minutes from the Pacific Highway, surrounded by Broadwater National Park. The park is located at the mouth of the Evans River, offering a sandy protected beach, with barbecues and covered areas for picnics. The fishing is excellent, with yabbies being pumped from the river sand flats. A great place for kayaking, boating or swimming. A couple of minutes walk along the river front track will bring you to the main surfing beach, which is patrolled in the summer months. Airforce beach offers a haven for the 4WD enthusiasts and beach fishing with many kilometres of access for those with a permit. Broadwater National Park offers many walking trails, with plenty of native wildlife and interesting rock formations. The park offers free Wi-Fi, waterfront sites, direct beach and river access and a playground for the kids. They are a short stroll from the town centre, with shops, bakeries, cafes, supermarkets and restaurants to meet your needs and desires.

We visited the Evans Head Memorial Aerodrome Heritage Aviation Museum which is located a short drive from the town. It was an important training aerodrome for training pilots during WW2. It used to have many many buildings and sadly around 1000 pilots who trained here lost their lives during the war. In the newly rebuilt heritage listed hanger is stored a newly acquired F111. What an amazing aircraft! A tour of the aircraft tells you how incredible these planes are. The guild tells you all its stats, which is truly mind blowing. There is staircase to gain access to the cockpit, which is incredibly cramped for the 2 pilots who fly the plane. There are a few other planes, a tiger moth and a Mig 15 and a few other light aircraft. Not a big museum but the F111 is the centre piece and for just $5 we really enjoyed the place. Even if not a plane enthusiast, the F111 will fascinate. The people who run the place do an excellent job.

We stayed at Silversand and it is a very nice park. The park is huge and has many powerded sites and ensuite site as well as tent sites. There a few laundry and shower blocks located throughout the park so there is never one far away. The cabins are modern and although not huge, all have an out door setting under a covered verander and have all you need for cooking a nice meal, bathroom and good sleeping for the family and a LCD tvs. The roads are all sealed and in good condition. The lawns are neat and there is an area in the park very suited to big vans or fifth wheelers with plenty of room to back the van into. The staff were very friendly as well. We stayed in an ensuite site and although the water pressure was not the best the water was hot and the ensuite neat and clean and plenty of room to move in. There are many 'permanant' vans with solid anexes but they are mainly holiday vans and they were all unocupied bar one. But at least they were all neat and well maintained. The town of Evens Head itself is small but neat and quiet and there is an IGA and all the usual shops in a town of the size. (pop 3300) The beach is long and firm and perfect to walk on, there is 2 breakwaters to fish from and the Broadwater National park nearby. There is also a lookout and a small marina. The beach is in walking distance from the park and the waves can be heard at night if you are in the right part of the park which is so relaxing. Not alot to do really but relax, listen to the birds and the surf and enjoy a lovely clean park.
