Please note
  • Frazer Beach is only patrolled during Christmas and Easter school holidays. The surf can be unpredictable so please be extremely cautious when swimming.
  • The nearby lagoon is a safe paddling spot.

The Grass tree track offers lots of possibilities for a varied and activity-filled day. At one end is Frazer Beach with a tidal lagoon for paddling in and golden sands to sink your feet into. The sea at Frazer Beach has rips and is only patrolled during Christmas and Easter holidays so be careful if you swim there.

Once on the Grass tree track, photograph coastal views over the heathland where cicadas buzz and butterflies flit, or bring your binoculars to bird watch. You may see a white-bellied sea eagle hovering in the sky, a southern emu wren perched on a shrub or a lorrikeet enjoying flowering grass tree spikes. If you love wildflowers, there are banksias, grevilleas and mint bushes blooming at various times of year.

Wybung Road is at the other end. Continue your walk along Geebung track with its great views of Birdie Beach or stroll to Wybung Head lookout and search for whales. They swim north around May and June, and head back down south in August to November.

You can car-pool and do the walk one way or return to your starting spot.

To make a weekend of it, stay at Frazer campground and enjoy a hearty barbecue dinner after your fun-packed day, but remember to book in advance.
