Flowering heaths, quiet beaches and abundant wildlife make this park a place to retreat, relax and appreciate the splendour and peace of the natural environment.
Explore the park on one of the several walking tracks and discover diverse coastal habitats. Burrum Coast National Park is spread over four sections, south of Bundaberg.
You will find mangrove-lined riverbanks, wallum heath with spectacular wildflowers and tea tree dominated wetlands where huge cabbage palms reach through the canopy. Areas of deeper soil support eucalypt forests, including the vulnerable Goodwood gum Eucalyptus hallii.
In the Kinkuna section enjoy the narrow picturesque beach, low coastal dunes, tea-coloured waterways and flat sandy plains.
Explore the Woodgate section on a wheelchair-accessible boardwalk across a melaleuca swamp (look for the cabbage palms) or along walking tracks to viewing and fishing platforms, and a bird hide. Canoe across the river, go birdwatching your try your luck at fishing.
Enjoy camping at Burrum Point or behind the dunes at Kinkuna (both four wheel drive access only). In late winter and spring, delight in the wallum heath wildflower ‘show’.
