Byfield National Park, Conservation Park and State Forest
Outstanding coastal scenery, massive sand dunes, rugged pinnacles and remote camping opportunities are highlights of a visit to Byfield National Park and Byfield Conservation Park. In Byfield State Forest, picturesque recreation areas are surrounded by rainforest-edged creeks, rugged mountains, pine plantations and ancient cycads.
Massive parabolic sand dunes (the oldest reaching more than five kilometres inland) and rugged pinnacles feature in the parks. Enjoy outstanding coastal scenery and explore coastal features along walking tracks ranging from easy to difficult. Spend some time fishing and birdwatching. Enjoy remote coastal camping opportunities, if you are well-prepared and self-sufficient. You need a four-wheel-drive vehicle to access the national and conservation parks.
In the State forest, pockets of rainforest thrive on the coastal range and adjacent to Water Park Creek, along with an exotic pine plantation and native forest. Enjoy camping, picnicking, walking, four-wheel driving, boating and fishing in the State Forest, which is accessible by two-wheel drive – but, caution is required as timber trucks share the forestry roads.
