Grass Tree Track

And Walk






30 mins

862 m One way


4 m

Experienced only

The Grass Tree Track links Wybung Head Rd with Frazer Beach via a ridge-top track. At the time of writing, this track was very overgrown (hence the high grade) and the trackhead difficult to find. Once on course, much of the track is clearer and quiet eroded in places. It is an interesting walk to see some diverse vegetation,noticing how it changes with altitude. At the bottom of the hill, the track emerges onto Frazer Beach before heading to the picnic area at the end of Frazer Rd.* This walk passes through very remote areas and sections have no visible track. At least one person in your group should have training and experience in off track walking and navigation. Even with these notes and a GPS these extra skills and equipment are required.

Easy track

A short walk to access the beach from Freemans camping area. This easy walk takes campers along a wide path to Birdie Beach car park, then to Birdie Beach. The campsite is far enough back from the beach to be protected from the sea breeze, so this walk saves the longer trip via the road. Further north on Birdie Beach is Red Ochre Beach (a nude beach) and also Birdie Lagoon. Birdie Beach is not patrolled.

1 hr 30 mins

3.3 km One way


96 m

Experienced only

Starting from Campbell Dr, this walk follows the Geebung and Grass Tree tracks to Frazer Beach, with an optional sidetrip to Wybung Head. Geebung Track leads you through the low heath and past a few sweeping ocean views, and great wildflower displays in spring and summer. The side trip to Wybung Head follows a dirt road, and the views are well worth the detour. Grass Tree Track is overgrown and unclear in places, making its way down to Frazer Beach.* This walk passes through very remote areas and sections have no visible track. At least one person in your group should have training and experience in off track walking and navigation. Even with these notes and a GPS these extra skills and equipment are required.

This walk follows the Coast Track to Frazer Beach, along the Geebung and (overgrown) Grass Tree Tracks.

From Snapper Point, there are more great ocean views and a lookout which views a large sea cave. If you have extra time, the side trip to Wybung Head is worth the effort. A very diverse walk exploring many of the highlights in the park.* This walk passes through very remote areas and sections have no visible track.

And Walk

5 m

Moderate track

This short walk takes you from the great view of Snapper Point Sea Cave (at the end of Snapper Point Rd) along a management trail to Snapper Point. The area is very rocky and provides grand ocean views. The memorial on Snapper Point gives a good reminder to take care. There are views out over the ocean, and also south to Frazer Beach and north up the coast. An enjoyable short walk with great views, especially on sunny days.
