Cape Conran Coastal Park is one of East Gippsland’s magnificent natural places, long clean beaches, amazing estuaries and a great diversity of flora and fauna.

Maria will be your local guide and at Cape Conran, she is keen to share with you some of her favourite places. On this small group tour she will lead you on lots of easy walks along the coast itself or through the coastal vegetation making use of a great network of tracks and boardwalk. Immerse yourself in the unspoilt beauty and enjoy the stunning contrasts and vivid colours

Salmon Rocks are a favourite with photographers and a great place to stroll along the beach.  The Yeerung Gorge is a surprising feature and a short walk takes you to see the deep dark pools fed by the Yeerung River.

The Gunai Kurnai people have a long history of connection with this land and you will learn something of their past occupation of this part of the coast and what makes it special to Gunai Kurnai people of today.

Birdwatchers will find the birdwatching rewarding, not just beach and sea birds, but the birds of the heathland and foothill forests and those who are found along the rivers and estuaries.

After the sun goes down, the nocturnal wildlife come out and one evening Maria will lead you on an evening spotlight walk to introduce you to some of these nocturnal residents.  Since the comprehensive “Southern Ark” fox control program has been in progress, fox numbers have decreased and numbers of small mammals have increased. On a night walk, as well as well as the possibility of seeing or hearing gliding possums and owls, it is not unusual to see Long-nosed Bandicoots and Long-nosed Potoroos. What a privilege!

You will be based in cabin accommodation for all 3 nights, which is basic but a good alternative to camping.

Maximum of 10 participants
