Bonville Creek is a great place for canoeing, kayaking and fishing and also offers great birdwatching opportunities in Bongil Bongil National Park, near Sawtell.
This saltwater estuary is also a good sheltered fishing spot and you might be lucky enough to be cooking up your flathead, mullet or mangrove jack for dinner that night.
Bonville Creek, surrounded by native bushland, attracts plenty of birdlife. Bring your binoculars for a chance to see cormorants, whistling kites, ospreys, kingfishers and the beautiful rainbow bee-eaters. Shorebirds such as little terns and pied oystercatchers make their nests at the mouth of the creek.
