Croajingolong National Park
One-third of Australia’s bird species have been spotted in this 87 500-hectare park that stretches for 100 kilometres along the coast. The threatened ground parrot forages in the heath and lorikeets feed in the woodlands. The keen of eye may see yellow-tailed black-cockatoos, eastern yellow robins and superb fairy-wrens. The wetlands attract 40 species of migratory seabirds and waders, while the coastal heathlands and woodlands are the hunting grounds of hawks, eagles and falcons. A UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, the park has beaches to explore and a range of walks – the 100-kilometre Wilderness Coast Walk explores some of the best, unspoiled scenery. There are several spots to camp, including Wingan Inlet. Campsite bookings are required during peak times and a ballot system operates for Wingan Inlet, Shipwreck Creek and Peach Tree Creek over the Easter holiday period (bookings online). Accommodation is also available at the Point Hicks Lighthouse keeper’s cottages.
