Our national parks enjoy a wild unspoilt coastline, fringed by forests and mountains that are home to diverse flora and fauna. In fact, our parks and forests account for 70% of the entire Sapphire Coast region – and they are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Expand your love of nature in a coastal adventure – bushwalkers are spoilt for choice, kayakers see a rare and rich marine environment, campers can embrace it all. If camping isn’t for you then enquire about staying over at the light house keeper’s cottages at Green Cape Light Station or Myer House in Mimosa Rocks National Park. Then there’s the heritage sites, fishing spots, mountain biking trails and barbecue stops.
National Parks and Wildlife rangers host a discovery program during the the summer holidays and special events during the annual whale migration in spring.
