Burrum Coast National Park is divided into three sections, Woodgate, Kinkuna and Burrum River, covering 23,100 hectares of diverse plant and animal communities, including mangrove-lined riverbanks, wallum heath with spectacular wildflowers and tea tree-dominated swamps where Livistona palms reach above the canopy. Areas of deeper soil support eucalypt forests, including the vulnerable Goodwood gum.

The central section (Woodgate) of the park, can be reached via Woodgate Beach township. From Woodgate Beach township, signs lead you to the national park.

Access to the northern section (Kinkuna) of the park, is by 4WD vehicle only. See pix to evaluate the sand driving conditions. Wet weather access may be restricted due to local flooding. See the DERM website for access details: http://www.derm.qld.gov.au/parks/burrum-coast/about.html

The southern section of the park (Burrum River) is on both sides of the Burrum Heads Road just before Burrum Heads township. Again, see the DERM website for further directions.

In the Woodgate Section, Hoppy Larks Creek picnic area has a wheelchair-accessible track to a viewing platform with a picnic table and fishing platform on the banks of the Gregory River. Walkers Point picnic area is wheelchair-accessible with paved areas to picnic tables and some of the walking track. The boardwalk from Acacia Street through a melaleuca (tea-tree) swamp is also wheelchair-accessible.

A small campground- 12 sites - with toilets, town water and cold showers is provided at Burrum Point in the Woodgate Section where camping permits and fees also apply.
