Deepwater National Park offers peaceful, vehicle-free beaches, important turtle breeding grounds and varied vegetation. Nature lovers will enjoy the range of animals and plants that call this park home. After dark, between January and April, witness turtle hatchings. Explore rock pools at Wreck Rock and picnic or camp at the shady campsite behind the dunes. Bush camping is allowed at Middle Rock.
This park protects sandy beaches, diverse coastal lowland vegetation and the catchment of near-pristine Deepwater Creek, one of Queensland’s few remaining undisturbed coastal freshwater streams
On this picturesque coastline in 1770, Cook made his first landing in Queensland and botanist Joseph Banks collected plants. Botanically rich, the parks protect both tropical rainforests and coastal mangroves. Today it is a paradise for bushwalkers, boaties and anglers. The 360 metre walking track to Ganoonga Noonga lookout offers views along the coast and across swamps and heathlands. Try beach fishing. At high tide, explore Eurimbula Creek by boat or canoe. Pitch a tent at one of Bustard Beach's shady campsites (toilets and limited water) or at Middle Creek (toilets only). Camping fees apply; bookings essential.
Agnes Water Beach - an unspoilt haven and Queensland's most northerly surf beach. Located just one hour south of Gladstone, the beach is famous for its picturesque surrounds, surfing, kitesurfing and standup paddle boarding. Each year in the sand and surf comes alive with exciting events including the 'Reef2Beach Longboard Classic' and 'Agnes Water Triathlon'. Main beach is located a short walk from the Agnes Water town centre, or (limited) car parking is available near the beach. When you've had enough of the white sands and blue waters, head to a nearby Cafe and enjoy the sensational Queensland weather.
