Evans Bay


Evans Bay is just another beautiful spot in the NPA.

It is south east of the northernmost point of Australia,



... it has a beautiful long beach,


... but there is strictly no camping here.

Track In

The track in starts off through a bit of bush,

evans bay track evans bay track
evans bay track evans bay track

... then comes to open vegetation,

evans bay track evans bay track
evans bay track evans bay track

... then there is a bit of a climb up through a rocky area,

evans bay track evans bay track
evans bay track evans bay track
evans bay track evans bay track

... past some big termite mounds,

evans bay track evans bay track
evans bay track evans bay track

... then descending on the other side of the hill,

evans bay track evans bay track
evans bay track evans bay track
evans bay track evans bay track

... as you get closer to the beach.

evans bay track evans bay track
evans bay track evans bay track

Then there is a small rainforest pocket, 

evans bay track evans bay track
evans bay track evans bay track
evans bay track evans bay track

... right before you get to the beach.

Evans Bay Beach

The beach is beautiful,

evans bay beach evans bay beach

... very shallow just like the one at the Tip.

Beach Drive South

The beach entrance is closer to the northern end,

evans bay beach driving south evans bay beach driving south
evans bay beach driving south evans bay beach driving south

... so the beach drive south is longer.

Southern End

In the southern end,

evans bay south evans bay south
evans bay south evans bay south
evans bay south evans bay south

... there is a corner with mangroves,

evans bay south evans bay south
evans bay south evans bay south
evans bay south evans bay south

... and the track goes in, ending up in an open grassy area,

evans bay south evans bay south

... and there are some beautiful views up the cliffs.

evans bay south evans bay south
evans bay south evans bay south

And if you climb even higher up to the ridge,

evans bay south evans bay south
evans bay south evans bay south evans bay south evans bay south

... you can see to the other side, and you can see the southern end of Ida Island.

Beach Drive North

Drive back to the northern end,

evans bay beach drive north evans bay beach drive north
evans bay beach drive north evans bay beach drive north
evans bay beach drive north evans bay beach drive north
 
... there is a creek, 

Northern End

... and through the mangroves,

evans bay north end
evans bay north end

... you can cross over the two headlands,

evans bay north end evans bay north end

... and there is another, smaller beach, with views over Eborac Island.

evans bay north end evans bay north end

From the two headlands,

evans bay north end evans bay north end
evans bay north end evans bay north end evans bay north end evans bay north end

... there are some magnificient views,

evans bay north end evans bay north end
evans bay north end evans bay north end
evans bay north end evans bay north end

... over the bay between them,

evans bay north end evans bay north end
evans bay north end evans bay north end
evans bay north end evans bay north end

... and over the Tip of Cape York,


evans bay north end

... and Yorke and Eborac islands.

evans bay north end evans bay north end

Like at the Tip, there are some cairns,


evans bay north end evans bay north end
evans bay north end evans bay north end

... some beautiful views also to the south, over the bays,

evans bay north end evans bay north end
evans bay north end evans bay north end

... and the beach of Evans Bay.

evans bay north end evans bay north end
evans bay north end evans bay north end

In the end it's a bit of a rock climb to get your vehicles back to the beach,

evans bay north end evans bay north end
evans bay north end evans bay north end

... but so is a lot of the rest of the headland.
