Description

Explore this beautiful stretch of coastline north of Agnes Waters, the site of Captain James Cooks first landing in Queensland. Imagine the reaction of Captain Cook, sighting the windswept headlands and unspoilt coastline now protected in this park, during his voyage in 1770. Discover for yourself the parks unique blend of landscapessee mangrove-fringed estuaries, freshwater paperbark swamps, lowland eucalypt woodlands with weeping cabbage palms, and tall rainforest with towering hoop pines. Stroll along wide, sandy island beaches with rugged boulders and delicate rock pools, or venture on a botanical walk to Ganoonga Noonga lookout track for spectacular views over the coastal lowlands. Wander through colourful wildflowers in spring, looking for red-tailed black-cockatoos and brolgas in the woodlands. Paddle along tranquil coastal waterways and creeks on the Eurimbula sea trail, where cormorants and white-bellied sea-eagles are often spotted along the shore.

Isolation so close to 1770. A beautiful wild place. Love it. Beware the tides, we witnessed 3 adults get caught in a rip. They were rescued but it was a reminder of the power of the tides.

What a gorgeous part of the world. Such changing landscape as you drive in. Great for a day trip or camping.
