Croajingolong & coast
Croajingolong National Park covers a long stretch of the far east coast of Victoria and is part of Australia’s Coastal Wilderness Landscape. Much of this is a wild remote coastline, with cliffs, rugged rocky headlands (and lighthouses) and of course some beautiful long white sandy beaches.
But its not all about the ocean, Croajingolong includes beautiful coastal forests, small peaks with great views, heathlands, rivers, lakes and estuaries. All of these are rich in nature experiences with a very long list of birds and other wildlife. Best of all, there are few visitors except in peak holiday periods. It’s not unusual for our small group to be the only people on the beach, visiting a lookout or enjoying wildflowers beside a track.
Sadly a very large portion of the Croajingolong Coast has been impacted bushfires over summer. We know there are small unburnt pockets and some sites are still as beautiful as ever (Pt Hicks Lighthouse is one of these), but access to many parts of this coast will be slow to re-open. We hope that later in 2020, we may be able to offer a short tour to bring much needed business to local fire affected communities as they struggle to recover. The tour will include both some unburnt areas and some fire impacted ones too.
