A natural environment
Many people come to Eurimbula National Park to enjoy the beach and fishing in a quiet, unspoiled area, but there is more to this area than meets the eye. The sandy beaches, pristine waterways and windswept headlands adjacent to the Great Barrier Reef Coast Marine Park are only some of the area’s features.
The park is rich in cultural history and is part of the Gooreng Gooreng Aboriginal people’s traditional country.
Sand bars and tidal estuaries provide the ideal habitat for visiting and resident shorebirds.
Eurimbula National Park features a transition of vegetation and landforms that are unique in Central Queensland.
Look for the marked changes in plant communities from mangrove-fringed estuaries, freshwater paperbark swamps and coastal lowland eucalypt forests with weeping cabbage palms to the tall rainforest with elegant hoop pines.
From the Bruce Highway at Miriam Vale, follow the road signs towards Agnes Water and Seventeen Seventy. Look out for the Eurimbula National Park sign, which is 10km before the town of Agnes Water. Turn left onto the unsealed road and travel 4km to the park entrance.
