Information

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 fscr@environment.nsw.gov.au).
Access In two sections to the north and south of Eden. The north section is via Haycock Road 8 km north of Eden off the Princes Highway. The south section is 25 km south of Eden on Green Cape Road (unsealed) off Edrom Road. Green Cape accommodation is designed for wheelchair access. Vehicle entry fee applies.
