Please note

  • It’s a good idea to put sunscreen on before you set out and remember to take a hat and plenty of drinking water.
  • Check the weather before you set out as the road to Mimosa Rocks walking track can become boggy when it rains.

The Mimosa Rocks walking track is in the northern section of the park, it’s an easy walk so a great one for children, plus it is wheelchair accessible.

Start your walk at Aragunnu carpark – there’s a well-defined track linking the section’s two picnic areas. Follow this short track then continue north another 250m on a paved path and boardwalk.

The boardwalk crosses over the largest Aboriginal midden in the park – take your time to read about the history and significance of the area along the way.

At the boardwalk’s end, you’ll be rewarded with dramatic views over the rocks from the lookout. Keep an eye out for the large pyramid-shaped rock – beneath it rests the shipwrecked Mimosa, a paddle steamer that ran aground in 1863, and after which the park is named.
