Scenically located between the coast and a tranquil lake, on the NSW mid-north coast, Booti Booti National Park takes in scenic headlands, beautiful beaches, refreshing rainforest, and 11km of estuarine foreshore. The name comes from “butibuti,” the local Worimi Aboriginal word meaning “plenty of honey.”
Plenty is certainly a common theme here – plenty of hiking, swimming, birdwatching, and whale watching in the winter as they migrate along the coast. There are plenty of opportunities to settle down in a picnic spot beneath the paperbarks, and plenty of surfing and mountain biking for the young at heart.
The beaches are an enduring favourite, with families and sun-lovers turning weekends into energetic gatherings. Add in terrific driving tours and some truly stunning lookouts like the one at Cape Hawke, and you have a park that appeals across the board. Booti Booti has plenty for everyone.
Highlights in this park
NSW national parks have the best vantage points to see whales during their annual migration, which takes place from May to November. Plan your next coastal adventure.
