Burrum Coast National Park

Description

So diverse is this National Park that you can enter from one of four points: the Woodgate, Burrum River, Buxton or Kinkuna sections.

Once here, discover this park’s wetlands which have national significance as they support habitat critical for Hervey Bay’s recreational and commercial fishing species. Home to mangrove-lined riverbanks; wallum health with wildflowers; and tea tree-dominated wetlands with huge cabbage palms; a wide diversity of animals and plants can be found here.

Camp in the Kinkuna and Woodgate sections. The Woodgate section is also the only place with designated walking tracks and these trails include the Banskia, Melaleuca and Russell’s Rest tracks and the Birdhide Walk.

Between the Woodgate and Burrum River sections, you can also go boating, camping and fishing on the Burrum and Gregory Rivers.
