Crowdy Bay National Park

Located near the northern end of Crowdy Bay National Park, just down from Dunbogan Beach, Blackbutt picnic area is a place full of surprises.

Enter through a maze of sentry-like blackbutt and clumping banksia to find yourself in a grassy glade. It’s just right for rolling out the rug and breaking open the picnic hamper.

There’s also plenty of room at the picnic area for the kids to play and adults to relax. Remember to take your swimmers or frisbee with you as the beach is just a short walk from the picnic area.
