  • Great little bike.or walk track. Well maintained, easy ride, only a few soft sand patches. Barely any elevation. In and back.

  • If you want to get away from it all, go for a walk across the narrow opening just before low tide. Would also be a great place to kayak across to. Great place to walk along the beach without another.....  more

  • Barely a couple of kilometres out of Tannum Sands, Wild Cattle Island National Park feels very remote. Despite being so close, the island is separated from the town by a creek, and you’ll need to make the crossing at low tide by 4WD or on foot, or by boat/kayak when the water’s up. The park’s obvious appeal comes from the long and wide sandy beach that runs almost the length of the island. Go carefully, because this is a key nesting site for loggerhead, flatback and green turtles, while dugongs feed just offshore. Be sure to bring binoculars too, because Sooty Oystercatchers and Beach Stone-curlews come to peck around between March and October.
