Cape Palmerston National Park

Ilbilbie, Isaac Area

Cape Palmerston National Park features sandy dunes, unspoilt beaches and rocky headlands, with Mount Funnel towering to 344 metres. The park's beaches and inland roads are accessible only by four-wheel-drive vehicles. Check tide times before setting out as the beach is not passable at high tide.

Enjoy nature in this remote, undeveloped park. Go birdwatching to see ospreys and sea eagles soaring overhead, and white-breasted woodswallows in flowering grasstrees. Look for other birds around the swamp on the road to the camping areas. On the beaches spot migratory shorebirds along with resident shorebirds such as beach stone-curlews.

Scramble up Cape Palmerston for breathtaking views towards the Northumberland Islands and Mount Funnel. During winter months spot whales offshore from your vantage point on the cape. Look for turtles in the waters below.

Launch your boat and try your luck fishing or crabbing, but remember to be croc wise.

Set up camp at Windmill Bay or Cape Creek if you are self-sufficient and well-prepared for bush camping with minimal facilities.
