At Alligator Creek, in Bowling Green Bay National Park, near the camping area, a spacious day-use area has picnic tables, a shelter shed, gas barbecues and toilets. The area caters for large groups. There is a smaller day-use area along the track to the lookout with a covered picnic table and a gas barbecue. Picnic tables are also located along the road leading to the camping area and main day-use area. Please remove your rubbish. Alligator Creek is a great place to visit but is also hazardous. Water levels can rise rapidly and care must be taken in and near the water because of slippery rocks and submerged objects. Heed all warning signs. Serious injuries and deaths have occurred here.
