The Coola Outstation Historical Walk is located 20km south west of Millicent. The walk features the Coola Lookout which offers a fantastic view of the lake, dunes and farmland surrounds. Across the boardwalk is an area of dryland tea-tree known as the ‘singing forest’ with picnic facilities available. Examples of early farm machinery may be seen along the walk.
Discover a spectacular coastline of cliffs and long stretches of surf beaches in Canunda National Park. Featuring a diversity of coastal habitats, Canunda offers great opportunities to enjoy bushwalking, observe local birdlife, surf the waves or snorkel among the fish.
The northern section of the park is characterised by limestone cliffs, sea stacks, offshore reefs and low dense scrub, whereas the southern section is dominated by mobile sand dunes and stretches of beach which are backed by low foredunes. Evidence of the Boandik Peoples, who regularly camped along the coast, can be seen throughout the park.
The 40km coastline offers great fishing opportunities. Depending on the season and ocean conditions, mulloway, salmon, sharks or rays may tempt a bite. Try your luck off the rocks where sweep, abalone and crayfish may be caught.
Four-wheel driving is possible along the full length of the park by following the marker posts through the dunes and along Geltwood Beach.
While you’re in the area, why not visit the Lower South East Marine Park.
