Hat Head

Hat Head National Park

The coastal Hat Head National Park stretches from just north of Crescent Head to just south of Little Bay near South West Rocks and covers 6445 hectares. The park features long sweeping beaches, dramatic and geologically significant headlands and Smoky Cape, the highest lighthouse in Australia. Reserved in 1972, Hat Head National Park contains extensive wetlands which run parallel to the beaches. The wetlands are being inundated by huge mobile dunes. The higher areas of the park feature eucalypt woodlands changing to moister vegetation communities and rainforests in the gullies. The exposed headlands feature extensive coastal heaths with rainforests and palm forest lees.

Hat Head National Park provides a range of activities including birdwatching, bushwalking, snorkelling, photography, swimming and surfing. A walking track system radiating from the Gap parking area guides visitors through the mid section of the diverse coastline. Highlights include the Hat Head Trig, Korogoro Point, the Arch, the Cave and secluded Connors and Third Beaches.
