Description

The Queen Mary 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 Regional 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 outstanding 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.

At the southern end of Nine Mile Beach, the four kilometre return Queen Mary track passes through shady swales and over sandy foredunes to the base of Byfield's largest active sand blow, the Queen Mary. A walk to the active front will reward visitors with scenic inland views. Allow about two hours walking time to complete this track of a moderate grade. The track entrance is 9.9 kilometres south of Nine Mile Beach Access Track/Junction 19. The track is marked from the beach to the base of the sand blow only.
