A picturesque sweep of coastline and long, sandy beaches backed by high sand dunes are protected in this central Queensland park.

To the north, rugged granite peaks, Mt Atherton and The Peaks, rise above the sandy landscape.Coastal heath, open woodlands and forests, paperbark swamps, mangroves and rainforest-fringed creeks add to this park’s wonderful natural variety.

Tidal wetlands are protected in the southern end of the park around Sandy Point. Endangered little terns nest in this part of the park and vulnerable beach stone-curlews have also been seen.
