Cape Hillsborough National Park
Join a wallaby for breakfast
Cape Hillsborough National Park is one of the most scenic locations on the Central Queensland coast. Rugged, rainforest-clad hills plunge to rocky headlands and white sandy beaches in this scenic and peaceful park. Lowland rainforest fringes creeks, valleys and gullies while tall forest grows on rocky headlands. Learn how the Traditional Owners thrived in this special place for thousands of years. Be at the beach at sunrise or sunset to hang out with agile wallabies—a truly iconic Australian experience. Climb the headland for views over the offshore islands, maybe you’ll be tempted to head offshore and continue your holiday on one of them!
