Iluka - Cities, Towns and Localities
The relaxed northern rivers coastal village of Iluka is located in the Clarence Coast region of New South Wales, a unique, diverse and pristine coastal environment that encompasses the Clarence River, estuary and coastline, plus some 100 islands.

Just 77 km north-east of Grafton and 92 km south of Ballina, Iluka is nestled on the northern mouth of the Clarence River, with Yamba on the southern mouth of the Clarence River.

Surrounded by Bundjalung National Park and Iluka Nature Reserve to the north, you are within the traditional homelands of the Bundjalung and Yaegl Nations. These special places contains vast heathland plains and mangrove mudflats with the sand beaches and rocky headlands, as well as the heaths, wetlands, lagoons and the Esk River. Within the Iluka Nature Reserve is the World Heritage Gondwana Rainforest, the remnant of what was once an extensive coastal rainforest.

A range of activities include recreational fishing, bush and coastal walks, surf and swimming beaches, 4WD (permit required), whale watching at Iluka Bluff, or just relaxing with a picnic on the river bank and enjoying the laid back atmosphere that makes this a unique coastal destination for locals and visitors.
