Cape Palmerston National Park features sandy dunes, unspoilt beaches and rocky headlands, with Mount Funnel towering to 344 metres. Within its 7200 hectare expanse, this park protects a range of plant communities and threatened animals. The false water-mouse lives in the mangroves and beach stone-curlews frequent the shores. Both are considered threatened species. Enjoy nature in this remote, undeveloped park. Scramble up Cape Palmerston for breathtaking views towards the Northumberland Islands and Mount Funnel. Try your luck fishing or crabbing, but remember to be croc wise. Self-sufficient campers can bush camp at Windmill Bay or Cape Creek. Camping fees apply.
Children are welcome.
How To Get There
The Park is 115 kilometres south-east of Mackay. Take care driving in soft sand along the beach and be aware of the extreme tidal range. Use four wheel drive vehicles only.
