Change of Conditions

Nature being nature, sometimes conditions can change at short notice. It’s a good idea to check this page ahead of your visit for any updates.

  • Notices Affecting Multiple Parks

    Point Hicks Lighthouse and caravan turning circle access.

    Vehicle access beyond the end of the Thurra campground is currently modified due to ongoing coastal erosion.  Visitors wishing to access the beach at the gate or walk to the Lighthouse need to park at the end of the Thurra campground in the Hiker's carpark.  Please note that this extends the Lighthouse walk to 8 km return (and also extends the West Beach, Saros and Sledge Walks).  Due to this change, caravans greater than 4 metres in length are no longer recommended for Thurra camp as there is no turnaround area available.  These changes are made to ensure visitor safety.

  • Notices Affecting Multiple Sites

    Point Hicks Lighthouse Walking Track

    Vehicle access beyond the end of the Thurra campground is currently modified due to ongoing coastal erosion.  Visitors wishing to access the beach at the gate or walk to the Lighthouse need to park at the end of the Thurra campground in the Hiker's carpark.  Please note that this extends the Lighthouse walk to just under 8 km return (and also extends the West Beach, Saros and Sledge Walks).  Due to this change, caravans are no longer recommended for Thurra camp as there is no turnaround area available.  These changes are made to ensure visitor safety.
