Wattamolla, Garie and Burning Palms are among the most beautiful beaches in Australia. Enjoy a picnic in one of many peaceful, shady areas or hire a rowboat at historic Audley and take a paddle up Kangaroo Creek. There are kiosks at Garie, Wattamolla and Audley. The kiosk and picnic pavilion at Audley and the visitor centre are wheelchair-accessible, as are the toilets nearby. The Bungoona Track close to the visitor centre is a 500-metre concrete path with a wheelchair-accessible lookout. Discovery walks, talks and tours are available year round.
