Cape Conran Coastal Park

Cape Conran Coastal Park is part of an Aboriginal cultural landscape. Parks Victoria respects the deep and continuing connection that Traditional Owners have to these lands and waters, and we recognise their ongoing role in caring for Country.

Cape Conran Coastal Park is tucked away along Victoria's far-east Wilderness Coast. Camp among Banksias and Manna Gums alongside colourful New Holland Honeyeaters and inquisitive Lace Monitor goannas. The wild ocean beaches are perfect spots for beachcombing and, from May to October, look out for whales on their annual migration.

Choose from a range of camping options. From the remote Bemm River and Pearl Point to the main campground, Banksia Bluff which has toilets and bush showers.

The park is home to a charismatic cast of wildlife, including Victoria's biggest lizard, the Lace Monitor, Wombats, Southern Brown Bandicoots, Long-nosed Potoroos and birds such as the New Holland Honeyeater and White-bellied Sea Eagle.

See magnificent marine animals. Dolphins surfing in the waves, whales migrating from May to October and seals at Beware Reef Marine Sanctuary. Dive or snorkel at Joiner’s Channel or West Cape to see an amazing, diverse underwater ecosystem.

Stroll along the East Cape Boardwalk. Interpretive signs explain the Aboriginal history of the Cape.

As beaches and coasts are natural environments, you may encounter hazards. Follow our water safety advice to make sure your day out at Cape Conran Coastal Park is a safe and enjoyable one.
