Rocky Cape National Park

Activities

Rocky Cape

Facilities and camping

Rocky Cape is mainly a day use park, so no camping areas are provided. Limited private accommodation can be found at Sisters Beach and Boat Harbour, east of the park. West of the park there is camping with facilities at Rocky Cape township and Crayfish Creek, and camping at Peggs Beach Conservation Area (see Camping and Cabin Fee Information for details). Supplies are available at some of these settlements as well as at the Rocky Cape turn-off on the Bass Highway.

Within the park there is a picnic area with tables and a gas barbecue at Mary Ann Cove. Toilet facilities are available at Burgess Cove and Mary Ann Cove in Rocky Cape National Park. Drinking water is not available in the park. The Sisters Beach holiday area has electric barbecues, toilets and drinking water provided by the local council.

Activities

Although it's a small park, Rocky Cape offers visitors a wide variety of coastal experiences, from small sheltered beaches to banskia-dotted hillsides with sweeping views out over Bass Strait. Here you can also learn about Aboriginal life on the north-west coast when caves were first occupied about 8,000 years ago.

Swimming, fishing, boating and bushwalking are popular activities. The park offers a fascinating variety of walks, ranging from less than 20 minutes to a full day. These take in Aboriginal rock shelters and caves, scenic hills full of wildflowers and birds, and tranquil beaches, bays and rocky headlands.
