Banksia Track And The Boardwalk

Multiple Locations

Woodgate is known for the long, white stretches of sandy beaches that overlook the magnificent Southern Great Barrier Reef, but you can also strap on your walking boots and experience some of Australia's distinctive flora and fauna as you walk the Banksia track.

A paperbark-lined, wheelchair accessible boardwalk opens up to a 5.2 kilometre experience like no other with tea trees and the brown Banksia dotting the landscape.

Keep an ear out for the wattle and friarbirds and you be the judge of to see who wins the loudest battle as the loudest amongst the Banksia's foliage.

A flash of fire engine red might just be the scarlet Honeyeater, a streak of emerald green a King Parrot, the chorus of the distinctive Whipbird and the grey Shrikethrush are just some of the 200 plus bird species spotted in the park.

Take a stroll and take in the vistas, sounds and smells of mangrove-lined riverbanks, wallum heath, swamp banksia, wallum banksia, tea tree wetlands, eucalypt forests and spectacular wildflowers and bird life throughout August to October (when everything is in full bloom).
