Nestled on the coast between Baffle Creek and Deepwater National Park, Broadwater Conservation Park is a quiet retreat for self-sufficient campers. This small diverse coastal remnant contains casuarina woodland on the foredunes, mangrove-lined creeks, and mixed eucalypt open forest and paperbark woodland further inland. Between June and October you may see migrating whales breaching out at sea.

Go birdwatching or fishing. Stroll along the beach as soldier crabs skittle into holes. Explore life behind the dunes in mangrove-lined creeks.

Camping in the Broadwater area (Mitchell Creek) is closed until 30 September 2013. Vehicular access to Rules Beach is not available due to severe dune erosion. Pedestrian and vessel access is available and the park is open for day use.
