Agnes Water, Gladstone Area
Deepwater National Park protects sandy beaches, diverse coastal lowland vegetation and the catchment of near-pristine Deepwater Creek, one of Queensland's few remaining undisturbed coastal freshwater streams.
Nature lovers will enjoy the range of animals and plants that call this park home. Deepwater supports a diversity of birdlife such as emus, red-tailed black cockatoos, honeyeaters, brahminy kites and water birds. From January to April, turtle hatchlings emerge from the nests, usually at night.
Explore rock pools at Wreck Rock and picnic or camp at the shady campsite behind the dunes. Bush camping is also permitted at Middle Rock. Camping fees apply; book in advance during school holidays.
Access to the National Park is by Four Wheel Drive only.
