national parks


Come to where majestic mountains, tall forests, vivid rock formations, lakes and remote beaches form a diverse landscape of spectacular beauty and history in the National Parks of Australia’s far south coast. Our national parks form part of what is internationally recognised as “Australia’s Coastal Wilderness.” Immerse yourself in nature as you explore Beowa, Bournda, Mimosa Rocks, Wadbilliga, Mount Imlay, South East Forests National Park and Nadgee Nature Reserve.

BEOWA NATIONAL PARK (formerly Ben Boyd National Park)
Beowa National Park, formerly Ben Boyd National Park, is Eden’s closest national park. Discover intriguing history, spectacular coastal views, walks, geology and wildlife. This park is divided into two sections:

North [Pambula–Haycock]
Located between Merimbula and Eden is the Pambula–Haycock area of Beowa National Park. Here, you can take a walk or explore the coastline at Severs Beach, Barmouth Beach and Haycock Point. These are great spots for a picnic, walk or a day at a secluded and pristine beach.

Just 30km south of Eden, Mount Imlay National Park is great for a daytrip. Enjoy picnicking, birdwatching, walking, the wildflowers and coastal views. It’s the perfect place for those who want to get back to nature and bask in the peace and quiet of the bush. The park is part of a system of national parks and reserves that protect the coastline and ranges between Moruya and the East Gippsland region of Victoria, along with nearby parks such as South East Forests National Park and Nadgee Nature Reserve. The skyline is dominated by Mount Imlay — or Balawan as it’s known to local Aboriginal people. Take a scenic drive through the bush and spend the afternoon picnicking under the trees. If you’re a fit walker and up for a challenge, why not hike to the summit of Mount Imlay? You’ll enjoy birdwatching along the way and incredible coastal views from the top.
