Crowdy Head, five minutes north of Harrington, is a quaint fishing village and home to the historical Crowdy Head lighthouse. Perched high on the headland, the lighthouse site provides exceptional 360 degree views across the Manning Valley and north to the Hastings Valley. This is a great spot for whale watching in migration season and is easily accessible on a sealed road.
Fishing charters and whale watching off Crowdy Head are available all year. The popular Crowdy Head Beach, patrolled during summer holidays, is edged by Crowdy Bay National Park which sweeps in a long arc from spectacular Diamond Head in the north to Crowdy Head in the south. Crowdy Head has a surf lifesaving club and an excellent boat ramp.
A variety of accommodation options are available in the area.
