Rocky Cape National Park
There is great snorkelling and in-shore diving among the sponge gardens and myriad marine life here, and a wreck, the Southern Cross, is lying in a few metres of water off the cape. The coastal heath has prolific birdlife and wildflowers including orchids. There are Aboriginal sites and shelters to discover and a variety of walks, ranging from less than 20 minutes to a full day. These take in Aboriginal rock shelters and caves, tranquil beaches, and rocky headlands abounding in rockpools.
