Join us each month as we showcase our amazing national parks with our Park of the Month program.
Park of the Month is a great way to gain a deeper understanding of our special natural places and to find new ways to enjoy them.
Each month there will be variety of events for everyone to enjoy, many of them are free. You can learn more about a park direct from the park ranger, have an adventure and explore a park in a different way with activities such as rock climbing, kayaking and mountain biking, chill out in nature with yoga and forest bathing, hear about the cultural history and join in conservation efforts to protect and conserve national parks for future generations.
December - Lincoln National Park
This month we’re celebrating Lincoln National Park as our Park of the Month.
Overlooking Boston Bay, Australia’s largest natural harbour, Lincoln National Park is a haven for boating, fishing, beachcombing, swimming, bird watching, wildlife watching and nature walks. You won’t have to look hard to see postcard worthy views of tranquil bays and beaches on its northern side and wild rugged southern coastline. This park is certainly a special place worth celebrating!
This December come and see why this park is so special and join us for one of our events. Tickets are limited tickets, so book early so you don’t miss out!
