Description

Kinkuna section of Burrum Coast National Park preserves a wilderness area of coastal vegetation and wide, unspoilt beaches, just 30 kilometres south of Bundaberg. The Burrum Coast National Park which also incorporates both Woodgate and Burrum River sections is part of the Great Sandy Region, of which Fraser Island is best known. Kinkuna offers a true coastal wilderness experience for camping or hiking. Sand tracks lead through the predominantly flat landscape dense with vegetation and along the oceanfront.

Kinkuna section is renowned for its springtime wildflower displays. The vegetation of coastal heath and banksias grows in poor, sandy soils either swampy or very dry and as is often the case, these types of areas put on a spectacular wildflower show - where it seems every bush and tree is covered in pale blossoms of white, pink and yellow hues. August to October is the peak time to view these wildflowers here, in Woodgate section and also just to the north at the Coonarr Wildflower Reserve. Kangaroos and wallabies, emus and abundant birdlife are features of the park.
