Rocky stretches of coastline with vivid rock formations, heaths and banksia forest flank Twofold Bay. Don't miss Boyds Tower, built for whale spotting by Ben Boyd. The Quoraburagun Pinnacles - white sand cliffs topped by red clays - and Green Cape Lightstation are well worth a visit. Unique heritage accommodation is available in the Green Cape assistant light-keepers' cottages.
The 750 m walk to Boyds Tower is wheelchair-accessible. Day tours and accommodation are available at the lighthouse year round (phone Merimbula for bookings and information). A 30 km track, the Light to Light Walk, links Boyds Tower and the lightstation - a brochure is available from the park office in Merimbula. There's car-based camping (not for caravans} at Saltwater Creek and Bittangabee Bay; bookings are essential for Christmas and Easter holidays {write to PO Box 656, Merimbula 2548, fax 6495 5055 or email
