The Springlawn area of the park is a large flat meadow where you can...More
I was lucky enough to discover this location and found the most magnificent beach named Bakers Beach. It would be 4-5kms long and you are the only person on the beach most of the time. It is stunning. There are Wallabies, Kangaroos, Tasmanian Devils, Echidnas,...More

You can enter the park either from Devonport , Exeter or up by us Yorktown (Nr Greensbeach). Along this stretch there are wombats in abundance after dusk. Although our speed limit is 100k please take care to slow down to 50 odd k to preserve our wildlife and also your car. Kelso is another place to see Wombats ambling down the street at the moment with their wee families
