Divided into two sections, Wyrrabalong National Park conserves the last patch of coastal rainforest on the Central Coast. Visit this precious place to swim, surf and fish along a striking coastline and be awed by the superb red gum forest, diverse wildlife and rich Aboriginal heritage.

Take a walk along the beach to see how the park’s sandy beaches alternate with rocky cliffs pounded by the sea. Look to the sky for eagles and kestrels. Explore the park’s varied landscape on a network of walking tracks, or stop at its picnic areas and enjoy picture-perfect surroundings. There’s a few bike trails in the park to explore as well.

Soak up dramatic coastal views and take in the spectacular sight of whales on their annual migration – the park is a hot spot for whale watching.
