At Cape Hillsborough National Park, rainforest literally meets the waters of the Great Barrier Reef, providing unique habitats for plants and animals. Rugged, rainforest-clad hills plunge to rocky headlands of rhyolite boulders. Created by volcanic activity, the boulders separate white sandy beaches in this scenic and peaceful park.

Watch the sunrise on the beach and meet friendly wallabies as they search for treats that the ocean washed up overnight. This is the perfect opportunity to get beautiful photos of the sunrise over the national park and get up close to these playful creatures.
