Just a short drive from Bega, Mimosa Rocks National Park offers up show-stopping headland views, beaches and pure lagoons, and you’ll be spoilt for choice with lookouts, rainforest pockets and historic sites to explore.

The park takes its name from the Paddle Steamer Mimosa that wrecked in 1863 after running onto rocks at the northern end of the park. The rocks of Mimosa have distinctive castle-like features that are the result of intricate folds, faults and intrusions occurring in the rock. For a view you’ll never forget, head to Bunga Head for sunrise, the rocks look magnificent backed by the pinks of the early morning sky.

You’ll also find plenty of opportunities for fishing, surfing, snorkelling and birdwatching throughout the park and there are great picnic areas to stop for a break. The park’s headlands are great vantage points for whale watching in winter.

It’s a great place to escape to for the day, and if you’d like to stay for longer, there are a range of campgrounds to choose from, including sites with motorhome and camper trailer access.
