Beowa National Park spans 47km of rocky coastline and sheltered inlets. Located near the whale watching town of Eden on the far South Coast of NSW, its crystal clear waters are perfect for snorkelling and swimming.

The National Park is separated into 2 areas, split by Twofold Bay. Take your pick from the sparkling lakes and surf beaches in the park’s Pambula-Haycock area to the rocky cliffs and beachside campgrounds in the Green Cape area.

Green Cape area is the southern section of Beowa National Park, located south of Eden. It’s your gateway to the Light to Light walk, camping, lighthouse accommodation and superb whale watching. The Green Cape area stretches from Boyds Tower, at the southern headland of Twofold Bay, to Disaster Bay at the southernmost tip of the park. And so does the 32km Light to Light walk which traces the park’s spectacular rocky coastline. It’s one of the best coastal walks in NSW.

Camp close to secluded beaches and bays at Saltwater Creek and Bittangabee campgrounds. If you’re after a little bit of luxury, stay in a heritage lighthouse cottage at Green Cape and wake up to the waves.

The coast around Eden is one of Australia’s best whale watching destinations. To watch the action from land, you’ll get a good view from Boyds Lookout and Disaster Bay lookout. Drop in to Davidson Whaling Station Historic Site if you’re interested in the area's shore-based whaling history.

If you’re short on time, day trippers can still find plenty to do. Walk a small section of the Light to Light walk or stop at Boyds Tower for views of the ocean and the heavily folded red rock beds at Red Point. Its spectacular sea-carved landscape is a striking display of folded red rock platforms that contrast against the sapphire blue water of the ocean.

Stretch your legs on one of the park’s shorter tracks, like the Pambula River or Pinnacles loop walking tracks. If you’re after something more exhilarating, the multi-day Light to Light walk takes you on an unforgettable coastal hike—tracing the coast from the historic Boyds Tower to Green Cape Light station.

Park fees apply to the Green Cape area (south of Eden). Generators and pets are not permitted. No gathering of firewood. You can only cycle or mountain bike on vehicle tracks. Fishing permitted with licence. Facilities include toilets, picnic tables, barbecues.
