Description

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.
