Ben Boyd National Park


This park is named after Benjamin Boyd, a prominent 19th-century Far South Coast entrepreneur. Its rugged coastline is a colourful display of folded red rocks, standing out against the sapphire blue waters of the Pacific Ocean. The park has sandy surf beaches, rugged bays, rock platforms, quiet campgrounds, sheltered inlets and historic lighthouses. Its heathlands and forests are home to a variety of plants and animals, including threatened species such as the ground parrot, eastern bristlebird, hooded plover, yellow-bellied glider and long-nosed potoroo. Park Highlights: Boyds Tower, at the entrance to Twofold Bay, which Ben Boyd built for whale-spotting, The Pinnacles: white sand cliffs topped by red gravel, in the northern section of the park, Green Cape Lightstation: see it on a tour, or stay overnight in the assistant lighthouse keepers’ cottages.
