Information

This Conservation Area protects a coastal area on the Tree Point Peninsula and a large mangrove habitat with a tidal creek that runs back in towards the Shoal Bay Coastal Reserve. A fringe of coastal vine thicket occurs along the beach for part of the Conservation Area. The access road follows the top of the dune with a large swamp on the landward side, which hosts a number of bird species at various times of the year.

The area is accessible from the Gunn Point Road. A turn-off towards the sea near the water tank on Gunn Point Road leads to the entrance to the Conservation Area.

The Reserve is accessible for most of the year although the track is impassable for a short period of time after heavy rains. Walking along the beach is an attractive activity. Motor vehicles are not permitted to drive on the beach. A variety of sea birds being present and the swamps often hosting birds such as Brolgas and Jabiru. Keep your eyes open for shells, fossilised shells, small fossilised crabs and drift wood as you walk the beach.

Small areas are set aside for picnicking on the edge of the beach. However, these can be overgrown at times with long grass, depending on the season. Care must be taken with fire, and only light fires in the fire places provided.
