Conway National Park

Phone: 137468

Description

Conway National Park is a peaceful coastal park with rainforest-clad hills, secluded beaches and panoramic outlooks over the scenic Whitsunday area. This park includes the rainforest-clad Conway Peninsula and protects the largest area of lowland tropical rainforest in Queensland outside Tropical North Queensland. Hoop pines grow on coastal ridges and in damp gullies, emerging above the rainforest canopy. Rugged, steep, rocky cliffs provide a spectacular 35-kilometre-long backdrop to the Whitsunday Passage and islands.

Walk or boat into secluded Swamp Bay bush camping area beside a secluded pebbly beach overlooking Daydream Island. Enjoy a wide range of bushwalking opportunities that start from the Conway National Park day-use area and Mount Rooper and Coral Beach car parks.

The Conway Circuit for walkers and mountain bike riders also winds through the park. From Mount Rooper lookout, take in superb views over the islands: Hamilton, Dent, Long and Henning. The view from the ridge above secluded Coral Beach is worth the effort of reaching there.

"Idyllic location with mikes off unspoilt beach. Great place to collect shells and admire the odd horse ambling with its rider along the shore!" more »
