Discover the magic of Deepwater National Park—an unspoilt coastal landscape with long sandy beaches, freshwater creeks and great fishing spots.
Jump in your four-wheel-drive and take a scenic drive through eucalypt woodlands looking for the local residents including wallabies, emus and a myriad of other bird life.
You can enjoy a picnic, explore the rock pools or try a spot of fishing on the beach near the Wreck Rock and Flat Rock day-use areas.
Feeling more adventurous? Go for a paddle in your kayak and see what marine life you can spot or take a relaxing beach walk, soaking in the sea air.
Sleep under the stars at Wreck Rock or Middle Rock camping areas—both just a short walk from the protected waters of the Great Barrier Reef. If you are lucky, you might witness one of nature’s most fascinating spectacles as the beaches from Wreck Rock to Agnes Waters are the only places (on Australia’s mainland) where the endangered leatherback turtle returns each year to nest. Look for nesting turtles on the beach from October to February and hatchlings making their perilous journey to the sea from January to April.
Much of the park is accessible by four-wheel-drive only.
