Dis­cov­er a spec­tac­u­lar coast­line of cliffs and long stretch­es of surf beach­es in Canun­da Nation­al Park. Fea­tur­ing a diver­si­ty of coastal habi­tats, Canun­da offers great oppor­tu­ni­ties to enjoy bush­walk­ing, observe local birdlife, surf the waves or snorkel among the fish.

The north­ern sec­tion of the park is char­ac­terised by lime­stone cliffs, sea stacks, off­shore reefs and low dense scrub, where­as the south­ern sec­tion is dom­i­nat­ed by mobile sand dunes and stretch­es of beach which are backed by low fore­dunes. Evi­dence of the Boandik Peo­ples, who reg­u­lar­ly camped along the coast, can be seen through­out the park.

The 40km coast­line offers great fish­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties. Depend­ing on the sea­son and ocean con­di­tions, mul­loway, salmon, sharks or rays may tempt a bite. Try your luck off the rocks where sweep, abalone and cray­fish may be caught.

Four-wheel dri­ving is pos­si­ble along the full length of the park by fol­low­ing the mark­er posts through the dunes and along Gelt­wood Beach.

While you’re in the area, why not vis­it the Low­er South East Marine Park.
