Rocky Cape National Park

Introduction

Rocky Cape National Park is full of surprises. You may only want to make a quick visit to the Rocky Cape lighthouse with its sweeping views, but there is much more to see if you take the time.

It makes the many corners of this small park worth closer inspection.
