Belongil Creek

Belongil Creek is situated in the Northern Rivers district of New South Wales. This small coastal creek has an intermittently closed estuary.

Belongil Creek is a lagoon with an intermittently closed entrance on the north coast of New South Wales. The entrance has a history of being artificially opened by council when high water levels threaten infrastructure, including the township of Byron Bay.

The upper estuary links with a large swamp system through a series of drains. A mix of agricultural, residential and industrial development impact on Belongil Creek.
