Description

Venus Bay Conservation Park comprises Weyland Peninsula and seven islands, and plays an important role in the recovery and reintroduction of rare and endangered plants and animals. Among the rugged cliffs, swamps, mangrove flats, sandy beaches, and an island tombolo (an island that rises above the water level but is tied to the mainland by a sand bar), there are perfect opportunities to watch more than 100 bird species while you are exploring the park. Go fishing or swimming along the sandy beaches or bring your binoculars to spot some of the park's coastal shorebirds or birds of prey. Further inland you may be lucky enough to see birdlife such as peregrine falcons, sea eagles, rock parrots and a variety of honeyeaters. The threatened brush-tailed bettong and bilby have been reintroduced into this park.

Came for an overnighter, stayed for two. Came from Port Kenny side enterance. Road in is corrugated, rocky and tight for a van (over hanging branches close to road, would likely catch a full size van. Was close for me). I have a 17ft off roader. It could be a nightmare when wet I think. But my stay was absolutely delightful. Well sheltered. Water access is more like Marsh/swamp access, but interesting. Little bit of birdlife, couple of roos. Blissful silence. As much space as you like and good Optus/Telstra reception. No flies, occasional Mozzie. But all in all great spot. I pulled up well before the marked site. Didn't even need to level the van.

If you like solitude and privacy, this is your camp spot. No good beaches but plenty of access to the water. Stayed 2 nights. Day 1 33°, day 2 23° and a bit if drizzle.
