Description

Freshwater Creek Track is located within Byfield National Park. Outstanding coastal scenery, massive sand dunes, rugged pinnacles and remote camping opportunities are highlights of a visit to Byfield National Park and Byfield Conservation Park. Byfield's parks and forests form the southern-most tip of one of the largest undeveloped regions on Australia's east coast. Byfield National Park boasts stunning coastal scenery and diverse plant communities. Behind the foreshore, sand dunes cloaked with heath, woodland and forest dominate the landscape. Massive parabolic dunes, the oldest reaching five-six kilometres inland, occupy most of the southern part.

The track entrance is 400 metres south of Nine Mile Beach Access Track/Junction 19. Park at the mouth of Freshwater Creek and stroll 250 metres to picnic among shady she-oaks beside the creek. Take a towel for a freshwater splash along the way. Allow about 30 minutes walking time to complete this 500 metre return walk of an easy grade.
