Treachery Headland walking track offers impressive views of Sugarloaf Point Lighthouse, the rocky headland and the coastline. It’s a short walk, taking you on a journey through the park’s coastal rainforest. You’ll pass a giant fig tree with intricate buttress roots before reaching the grassy headland where stunning views await.

A sidetrack off the main one will take you down to the white sands of the secluded Treachery Beach. It’s a great spot for fishing and surfing.
