    Guided Aboriginal culture walk with a Yuin Elder is in Eurobodalla National Park. Here are just some of the reasons why this park is special:

    Aboriginal cultural heritage

    Eurobodalla National Park is the traditional Country of the Yuin People. The park's landscape provided a rich source of food, shelter, medicines and weapons and continues to be an important place for Aboriginal people today. Walk the Bingi Dreaming track to follow the footsteps of the Brinja-Yuin People. Dreaming tracks traditionally linked the places visited by local Aboriginal people, then extended to connect other places utilised by neighbouring clans so that all Aboriginal people in Australia were connected by these unique highways.

    Birds galore

    Eurobodalla National Park provides an important habitat for a wide variety of birds, with 131 bird species having been recorded in the park. Estuaries and headlands within the park are important over-wintering areas for migratory birds, including 17 species of waders. In the summer, you may be lucky enough to see little terns nesting on the ground on sand islands, sandspits and dunes. If you do, please take care not to disturb this precious bird. You may also catch a glimpse of a sooty owl roosting in eucalypt forests in deep moist gullies, or the hooded plover which was only recently recorded in the park with potential threats similar to those of the little tern.

    Historic heritage

    The period from the 1840's to the 1900's saw a rapid development of the area as a result of several often short-lived gold rushes, the growth of more intensive pastoral and agricultural land uses, and the expansion of timber getting activities. Many small towns grew up throughout the area, often acting as transport hubs and points of supply for surrounding districts. South Head at Moruya has many reminders of the important role shipping played, including several breakwaters and training walls that guided shipping through the river mouth, as well as the pilot's cottage and several smaller buildings situated on the headland.

    Water abounds

    Eurobodalla National Park contains a range of aquatic environments, including lagoons, lakes, estuaries, sheltered and wild beaches that protect a wide variety of plants and animals. For visitors, these aquatic environments offer a huge range of water-based activities, like waterskiing and boating at Corunna Lake, fishing and swimming around Mullimburra Point, surfing at 1080 Beach and paddling on Brou Lake and around Lake Tuross. It's the perfect place to visit during the summer holidays.

    Plants and animals you may see

    Animals

    • White-bellied sea eagle. Photo: John Turbill

      White-bellied sea eagle (Haliaeetus leucogaster)

      White-bellied sea eagles can be easily identified by their white tail and dark grey wings. These raptors are often spotted cruising the coastal breezes throughout Australia, and make for some scenic bird watching. Powerful Australian birds of prey, they are known to mate for life, and return each year to the same nest to breed.

    • Australian pelican. Photo: Rob Cleary

      Australian pelican (Pelecanus conspicillatus)

      The curious pelican is Australia’s largest flying bird and has the longest bill of any bird in the world. These Australian birds are found throughout Australian waterways and the pelican uses its throat pouch to trawl for fish. Pelicans breed all year round, congregating in large colonies on secluded beaches and islands.

    • Humpback whale breaching. Photo: Dan Burns

      Humpback whale (Megaptera novaeangliae)

      The humpback whale has the longest migratory path of any mammal, travelling over 5000km from its summer feeding grounds in Antarctica to its breeding grounds in the subtropics. Its playful antics, such as body-rolling, breaching and pectoral slapping, are a spectacular sight for whale watchers in NSW national parks.

    • Yellow-tailed black cockatoo. Photo: Peter Sherratt

      Yellow-tailed black cockatoo (Calyptorhynchus funereus)

      The yellow-tailed black cockatoo is one of the largest species of parrot. With dusty-black plumage, they have a yellow tail and cheek patch. They’re easily spotted while bird watching, as they feed on seeds in native forests and pine plantations.

    • Peron's tree frog. Photo: Rosie Nicolai

      Peron's tree frog (Litoria peroni)

      Peron’s tree frog is found right across NSW. These tree-climbing and ground-dwelling Australian animals can quickly change colour, ranging from pale green-grey by day, to a reddish brown with emerald green flecks at night. The male frog has a drill-like call, which has been described as a 'maniacal cackle’.
