Welcome to Nambucca Heads - Information & More!

Did you know?

Cedar-getting was under way on the Nambucca River by 1842, although the dangerous sand bar at the river mouth caused major headaches until the end of the century for those seeking to transport their produce to markets.

There were a number of shipwrecks, and vessels were sometimes left stranded at the harbour for months at a time. Consequently, in the early days, logs were floated down-river by raft then hauled along the beach by drays to the Macleay River where they were picked up by ocean-going craft.
