Among the park’s eucalypt and sheoak woodlands, a wide variety of birds can be found, including the shy bush stone-curlew and the rare western whipbird. There are spectacular views from coastal lookouts that overlook the surrounding islands. You may even spot a whale or dolphin that pass by the area during the winter months.
