Eurimbula National Park

Eurimbula National Park, Agnes Water QLD 4677

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.

Joseph Banks Conservation Park

Endeavour Street, Seventeen Seventy QLD 4677
This historic coastal peninsula near Agnes Water is a little-known jewel on the central Queensland coast. Joseph Banks Conservation Park's rocky headland juts north into the sea, with ocean to the east and quiet estuarine waters to the west. Protecting almost all the undeveloped terrain around the headland, the park boasts spectacular coastal beauty in a region of increasing residential development. Its cultural value is equally significant—the park is part of the Gooreng Gooreng people’s traditional homeland and is considered to be Captain Cook’s first landing place in Queensland. Visit the rock cairn marking Cook’s 1770 shore visit from the Endeavour. Walk 250 metres through windswept tussock grasslands, vine thicket and coastal woodland to a lookout at the tip of the headland. Detour 50 metres to another lookout over a small sandy cove on your return. Look for dolphins and turtles frolicking in the clear waters below, or spot white-bellied sea-eagles wheeling overhead.
