The Space

The house is a short bush walk - past kangaroos most days - to quiet swimming and surfing beaches. Walk the 4 kilometres to Urunga via the beach and boardwalk over the lagoon and alongside the rivers. The foothills of the Great Dividing Range, less than 30 kilometres away, loom purple in the west. It is a scenic 20 minute drive up river through paddocks to historic Bellingen, and on up the Waterfall Way to lush Dorrigo which is surrounded by World Heritage National Parks. This is a good half way stop between Sydney and Brisbane.

Hungry Headland lies 4 kms south of Urunga, a small town on in the Mid North Coast region of New South Wales, Australia, in Bellingen Shire. It's known for its scenic beauty. At the 2006 census, Urunga had a population of 1,919 with a couple of small supermarkets, hotel, good fish and chips shop and a quality pasta and pizza eatery. The town is south of Coffs Harbour, Sawtell and Mylestom, north of Nambucca Heads, and downriver from Bellingen and Dorrigo. The place name, Urunga, is derived from an Aboriginal word meaning 'long beach'.
Urunga is a fishing ground, with bream being the main sport fish. The Urunga boardwalk, leading out to the beach, finishes at the mouth of the river and is almost 1 kilometre. Hungry Head, to the south is the only patrolled beach in Urunga.
